Sawmill Girl Galina's Story

I'll not write about the passing of my precious mum Irina. I will tell you this though that happened when the day came time for us to let her rest forever in Heaven and do her special work up there. I need to tell this to thank my family and so many people from Sawmill.

It was a beautiful warm sunny day in the season of Spring. When my new mum, dad, sis Karen and grandparents and I arrived where my mum would be put to rest there were so many people there I could not have counted them at my age.

Before we got out of the car so many people started standing side by side and seemed to be waiting on me to leave the car. My new dad opened the door for me and I got out and my new mum Anna took my hand. We started walking to where my mum was and there was so many people. They would hug me and tell to me their names.

There were a lot more peple there from America and Sawmill but to many to remember now.

When we walked up to where my mum was it was so sad a time for me. My mum and dad Blue held my hands. All my new sisters, brother and cousins made a large circle all the way around us. All the other people made one behind them and held hands too. They all started to sing a very pretty song in Russian to my mum and me and it made me feel so loved by them.

That day was a very sad day for me and I think about it sometimes. What I remember most about it was the love that was given to me by my family and friends here in Sawmill and that beautiful song they sang to my mum and me.

At that time in my life at 6 years of age I had just lost my mum and the only family member I had in existance that I knew of. I had some friends my age but I don't remember very much about them anymore. On our trips back to visit my mum and our grandparents I've met only one of them and we had really nothing in common or to talk about except how things are in our lives now.

One thing mum and dad have done for my sis Snoopy and me is to help us to never forgt our mums in Russia that are no longer on earth with us. We both have beautiful portraits done in oils of our mums hanging on the walls in our bedrooms. Mum has helped us to make scrapebooks using anything and everything we could possibly find about our mums. There is a wall in our den that has our family tree on it done in photos. On that wall also are all the photos Snoopy and me have of our mums and us when we were kids in Russia.

Thank you mum and dad, all my family and all my friends here in Sawmill that supported me on one of the worst days in my life at age 6 years.
