My mother spent a lot of time with her two eldest grandsons in Hawaii when they were little. They loved her Lemon Chicken, Blueberry Cream Cheese pie and everything else she cooked.
We haven't been able to see Shawn much because he was entertaning at night in Waikiki and was constantly traveling and performing among the Pacific islands, west coast and Japan.
Now Shawn is moving to Los Angeles where he'll be getting married to his Jeni. We're very happy for him. Mom wanted to make him Lemon Chicken one last time. I loved seeing them together. She wanted to give her wedding rings to Shawn, her eldest grandson. She told him her marriage lasted 56 years and hoped his marriage would also last as long.
Mom also gave him a card with a wedding gift and he was so touched that he was overcome with emotion. I felt badly then that we hadn't made even more of an effort to get them together because he was telling her of all his precious memories of those days when she used to cook for him when he stayed over.
Here my sister-in-law, Nancy is reading mom's card to him. We selected a card that he could feel since he has been blind from birth.
We're wishing Shawn a happy future in L.A. and hope there will be even more opportunity there for him to enjoy his professional life as a musician as well as life with the woman he is happy to have found.
