Many of you know about Sarah. She’s the 13 year old young lady who has written a few blogs for me. She’s a great kid with a special place in my heart. Sarah has a mother who just happens to be terrific as well. Her name is Kelsie. Kelsie is a Dreams Unlimited Travel agent and someone I am proud to call my friend.
Without going into all the details, Kelsie and her family have had a rough couple of years. It always seems that something happens to prevent Kelsie from taking a vacation.
Kelsie and family just returned from their much deserved Disneyland California vacation. Below is an email she shared with her fellow Dreams Unlimited Travel agents. With her permission I am sharing it with you all. It is word-for-word as she wrote it – pictures and all. I didn’t want to change a single, perfect word.
Back when Sarah was about 8 we were walking down Main Street in DL and she asked “Mom, where is Walt Disney?”. I explained to her that he was no longer alive and she said I know but where is he buried? I told her someplace in California, why? And she said because I want to put some flowers on his grave to thank him. That always stuck with me as a ‘Magic” moment and I told myself someday I would take her there. Well, this was the trip.
Walt is buried in Forrest Lawn located in Glendale. It’s a beautiful cemetery! His grave is located in the ‘Freedom’ area of the cemetery and is very easy to find. Here are some pictures:
Yep, someone actually left Chili and Crackers (rumored to be Walt’s favorite food and NO it wasn’t me! lol)
