We went and bagged ourselves a Christmas tree this weekend! We drove all over Illinois for this baby. Finally we found a great tree farm that featured our favorite kind of tree–a blue spruce–at a reasonable price. It was a pretty basic kind of place. I wore fake antlers.
Mom’s memorial service was on Sunday afternoon and I just want to thank everyone who came to the service, called, or wrote to express their condolences.
Whenever I feel bad about my mom’s death, I will think about all the family and friends that came to support us, share their grief with us, and most importantly, to share their good memories of my mom. I will take comfort in that for a very long time.
It was truly overwhelming to know how many people cared about my mom and our family.
Some folks have asked so I thought I should give an update to all about the memorial service:
My mom’s memorial service will be in Flint, Michigan, on Sunday.
There will be a visitation from 3-4 p.m. at Plumb-Smith Funeral Home, followed by a short memorial service. My mom was cremated. I will have a photo album and some pictures there so people can remember has when she was healthy and happy.
There will be a late lunch at the Burton Eagles club; my aunts and Dale’s mom (and her sister) are making dishes to pass.

Thanks for being such good friends to us.
