Memories Made Forever at Bent Creek! They are a part of our Family.
It’s that time again. Time for me to bring my family to visit Bent Creek. Only, this year, sadly enough, I am just bringing my mother and brother.
In May of this year my sweet daddy passed away. I cry just typing this email because he has been my travel partner to Gatlinburg for the last 44 years. We are going to miss him something fierce this year but I know he is going to be with us in spirit. Daddy was always the first to get out of the car when we arrived at Bent Creek so he could get into the office and get his freebie. He loved the little bear-shaped bottles you gave out for the last few years. So, with that being said, this year I am bringing my mother and brother so the 3 of us can spend some quality time together in one of your sweet cabins. We have never stayed in one of those before so we are excited.. Mamma lives alone now in Harrisburg, NC. Todd, my brother, lives with his family in Weaverville, NC and I live with my family in Gastonia NC. I decided we should leave everyone else behind so we can take this time to reflect on Daddy and somehow find joy celebrating his life.
My daughter, Jennifer and her daughter (Shelby) come every year when I have brought Mamma and Daddy. She graciously sat this one out so we could do this.
I tell you all of this to say “Thank you” for always, every year, making our trip up there so wonderful. You will never begin to know how many precious memories we have made with Daddy on our visits there and for that I will forever be grateful. As a Diamond Resort Member, I have to say your resort is my favourite out of all that we have visited over the years.
Thank you for the memories and we look forward to making more in the years to come.
I have attached a photo of a trip 2 years ago.
