This was the first Christmas without hubby's brother, Ron. There were two grapevine wreaths with florals & greens at his memorial service in July, and my SIL Carol gave them to me.
When Christmas came around, I needed a new lighted wreath as my old one got tossed during hubby's over-zealous shop cleaning. Out came the saved grapevine wreath. After adding several gold ribbons, lights, and gold ornaments, we hung it over the buffet. It seemed a fitting memorial to our missing brother. Ron would have appreciated the gesture...he so loved family gatherings and festive meals!
