Our family will say our final farewell to Aunt May on Wednesday at 1pm. Tuesday there will be visitation for her friends and acquaintances to pay their final respects. After she is laid to rest on Wednesday, we will have a celebration of her life. In future, I will share some memories of Aunt May with all of you. She certainly was an amazing woman.
Mom and I went today to arrange for flowers to be sent to the funeral home. Aunt May couldn't have flowers in life, as she was allergic to all fragrances, so we bought a nice saddle that is made of pine boughs, pine cones and carnations, which were one of her favorite flowers. It is especially made to remain at the grave after she's laid to rest.
Aunt May had her funeral pre-planned so there was very little for the family to do and her wishes will be followed. This is much easier on the family and she had a choice of what she wanted.
Thank you to everyone for your prayers and kind words of love and support. I've advised the family that many are thinking of them through this time and they are all amazed. What lovely sentiments. I will print out comments from yesterday's post so Uncle Joe and his family can read all of the lovely sentiments expressed. Aunt May was loved in life and will be no less loved now that she has made her final journey.
Though I haven't been online much and haven't visited like I usually do, I'm thinking of you all. Take care and enjoy the sights, sounds and fragrances of the season. ~Blessings, Mary~
