Yesterday was the memorial service for Mom. We thought there would maybe be 50 at the most attend as it is winter, roads are bad, and Mom has outlived many of her life long friends. But, we had almost twice that many attend. I appreciated so many of our friends coming to help us share in good memories and love.
Here is a link to the obituary. It was written by my sister and it was fun! This photo was taken at my sister's old time photo shop in Virginia City, Montana. The paster gave the best summary of stories we shared with him. The music was amazing. It was the best remembrance of love for a life well lived.
This is the original picture and it was with her "best friend" from the Bozeman Lodge where she had her apartment. Those two really hit it off and they did everything together. They went on every activity and every trip. She had a great last year and a half. I will miss her, but I know she lived a wonderful long, life filled with love, learning and lots of friends and family.
