Well Saturday was the memorial service for Aunt Pinky (82). The service was
real tearjerker as all her grandkids & children read a passage then shared
some personal experiences. She was quite loved.

The reception after was quite nice with many people bringing some thing to
share.

The basis was Costco ( I think) platters of croissant sandwiches &
turkey+stuff roll-ups ( the mayo & dressings were in containers no little
packets)
There were several salads, including a red potato, bow tie pasta with
salmon, tossed Green salad, macaroni Salad and a few others.
Red & white wine, beer, soda, bottled water, coffee & tea. The dessert bar
was sensational with enough chocolate to satisfy even the Cookie Monster.

All in all it was a really good sendoff.

Sorry about the loss of Aunt Pinky, please accept my condolences. This
reminds us how short life is and we should appreciate every moment.

Thank you - it was expected and a blessing although no one is ever really
prepared for the passing of a loved one.

I'll give it a B.

The church I attend used to serve it that way, too. No more. Must've
had a review by the health department or something. Leftovers would,
I'm pretty sure, go back into the original container. I don't think
you can do that. . .

There were several salads, including a red potato, bow tie pasta with
salmon, tossed Green salad, macaroni Salad and a few others.

Nice. Dessert is important.

All in all it was a really good sendoff.


She was lucky to have you in her life.

You are very kind - but quite frankly I was the lucky one - Hearing her
grandkids speak of Pinky gave me a real insight into being a grandparent.
