A sons Legacy to his community.

i want to share my wonderful day with you. It is a rainy, overcast, foggy day today. HOWEVER, it would have been our sons 40th. birthday. With my husband, my dad & me, went went to visit these Wind Turbines that our son Harley was instrumental in getting this massive adventure started several years ago. As he has passed away , they have named two roads in his memory. How humbeling is that for a parent to stand beside this road sign with your childs name on it. The one with the pile of wood around it is the first road to be named. I tied a huge yellow ribbon on the bigger sign. The last pic is of the wind turbine that will have his name put on it. These turbines are massive & you can hardly hear any sound coming from them as they turn with the wind. It was one of our better days ever since our Harley was killed. He never did get to see thes turbines put up, BUT, I know he is dirercting the whole process from afar. There are about 30 of them in  this particular area. Well done my child, well done. I hope this bit of personal info from me is alright to share with my quilting friends. I just wanted to boast about my "BOY". blessings to all. Dianne.
