We had a beautiful memorial service for mom and she would have loved it. Her favorite pastor officiated it and he did a wonderful service for her. I shared a few things that I thought would be a blessing. Quite a few people attended. Her favorite kitty was even there! Missing her so much!

So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I lost Mother and Daddy both in 2014. It is very hard to deal with but I know you can all get through this with time and always remember the great memories you all have. I know I have several from all the time I spent at your house on Lake Shore Drive in Culver. Memories are our most treasured gifts! Take care and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you!
