6. The Memorial

Yesterday we acknowledged the one year anniversary of Betsy’s passing. Life’s been different without her. That’s for sure. We all miss her tremendously.

We held a small memorial picnic up at Olive’s Knoll last month and mounted a memorial stone there. The memorial stone includes names from both the McKinstry and Ball families (who bought the Tregay homestead together nearly a century ago).

I wanted to share some photos of the memorial picnic as well as some from Betsy’s life that I personally love.

The memorial stone at Olive’s Knoll picnic site. It was a serious challenge mounting it to the boulder, but I think it looks very nice!
