Mom was an avid reader. Pretty much a book a day type. About 4 years ago she lost the ability to follow a story. There have been lots of sad moments over the course of this disease but finding several of her books with multiple book marks was the saddest.
My belief is that she has found a fluffy cloud in heaven and is now seated comfortably reading a book from a never ending pile of books.
She never wanted a funeral, but did want a party, so party we did. We had a lovely repast luncheon for friends and family. I'm sure we made her happy. I'm sorry I didn't get pictures but my sister in law decorated a small Christmas tree with pictures celebrating moms life hanging from plaid ribbons. It was just perfect.
