Fixin the little things is a page where I can share family and handyman information. Basically, this blog is all about me. Shameless self-promotion: of my family photos, of my services, of my writing, of my future, of my amazing ability to come up with clever ideas on photos of my life experiences . . . And also, a blatant visual aide when it comes to colors, spelling, formating, editing and computer stuff.

Many family and friends attended making it a very pleasant and comforting event. 

This post is intended to have links to a slideshow and photos taken on this day. I would like to thank all of those who attended and helped us celebrate Mother's life and all those who could not come but were there in spirit.
