The Shad is in Bloom

Today my dear friend Margaret will be laid to rest.  She died on December 4th nearly age 98.   
Margaret was the person who told me that the Shad trees always flower first in Spring.  
     We both loved to see its blossoms all the way up her beautiful country road.   RIP Margaret

This is a tribute to my Uncle Tom, whose funeral and burial are today.  The day before he died his son and daughter-in-law asked him, “What are your favorite flowers?”  Uncle Tom replied, “It depends. I usually buy what’s on sale. Both King Arthur and Gold Medal are pretty good. Sometimes I buy the store brand.” They say they couldn’t look at each other because they knew they'd lose it.  They added, "We're thinking that a 5 lb. bag of flour at the funeral might be appropriate. We’ll see what’s on special that week."

RIP Uncle Tom
