Many Thanks

Thank you to everyone who sent cards, emails, posted comments, covered classes, fed cats, and/or made "wake up" calls during my long drive to/from Baltimore. The funeral was a very sad event, although the turnout of hundreds of people was very heartwarming. And pretty incredible for a 94 year old woman - apparently many shared the opinion that she was a special lady! Everyone was given a unique memento, a rose named for Grandmom several years ago - the "Saint Etta" rose by Jackson & Perkins growers. This was the first time most of the extended family was together in 4 years, it was nice to catch up, share happy memories, and in general, celebrate a life well-lived.
