As we talked about how to do so, the answers came naturally, because the memories of Mom, for each of us, are so clear. We would go to the pool and the beach, of course, for Mom was a sun-worshipper of the first order who could spend hours by the pool or on the beach. We would go out to eat at least one meal, because that was another favorite activity. And, if a football game was on, we would watch it, together.
And we would play putt-putt golf. The grandkids had strong recollections of happy times and sunny days on the miniature golf links with Mom. So all of us trooped off to play putt-putt — and it was fun. Then we had lunch at Conchy Joe’s, one of Mom’s favorite places here, then we spent time poolside and on the beach, and we finally ended the day by cheering like crazy and making a ruckus as the Buckeyes pounded Rutgers, 49-7.
We can honestly say it was a day Mom would have loved, and we felt she was with us.
