Remembering Rob's Childhood Home: Part 1

The dining room
Since my (Rob) mom passed on Dec. 29, and because we have a house, and my two brothers have their homes, we have decided to sell mom's home. It was actually the house that we grew up in - it was built and ready by August 1962, just 3 months before I (the middle guy) was born. So, that was the only house I and my younger brother had ever known. There's a lot of memories in that house, and it's very sad to see it move on.
  My mom used to make her own drapes and loved yellow and white, as you can see in some of these pictures.

  My older brother suggested I take some pictures of the inside of it, to remember how it was when mom lived in it (my dad passed in 2008). So, here's the first part of those pictures.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
