Thank you all so much for your kind words. Mama's service was so beautiful. I actually planned it all myself, and I was helped by the church to put it all in the right order. I had planned the music, poems, had a beautiful collage of pictures, my oldest daughter put that together, my work sent a beautiful bouqet of flowers, it was truly beautiful.
Nikki, I tried so hard to download that song, but couldn't find it anywhere. It sounded so perfect and beautiful. But I did find another one by The Singing Cookes called "Send your best angel for my Mama". If any of you ever want to hear it you should try to listen to it sometime, it is really lovely. My Mama was a lover of the old country western style of music, and this song was perfect. I will admit for me and my siblings it brought alot of tears to our eyes, because it was perfect for my Mom.
I read a poem entitled "Dearest Family". And its like my Mom telling us about
Heaven, that she is okay, and that she will be there waiting for us when our time comes. My two oldest daughters read poems about
Grandma's love. And what was really really wonderful, is with all the planning I didn't think of refreshments for afterwards. But my sister's bible study group, all got together and created this wonderful spread. I was deeply touched by all their kindness. And my favorite pastor eulogized her so beautifully.
Thank you all for the love you have shared with me. I know I have the process of grieving to go thru, and I have to go thru it, no matter how difficult, I do have to go thru it. But you are all right, with your love, I will be okay. My husband has been truly wonderful thru it all. He really is my rock.
Thank you again for all your support and kindness. I am not feeling so much anxiety as I was, just feeling sad, but I know within time it will get better. I do love you all very much, I really really do.
