Late Mom's Favorite Planter

The planter belonged to Mark's mother. "It was my mom's favorite planter," he shared. "She loved to plant different plants and flowers in it every year and when she became ill and unable to do it anymore I took over the planting and have continued to do it after her passing."

Keeping the planting going is Mark's way of not only keeping his mother's spirit alive but his father's too. "My father would always help her. He passed in January of this year exactly 1 year to the day of my mother."
