Hi, i just wanted to let you know that Christinas funeral went as well as you could hope for today. Her family from Ireland and the USA together with friends and our daughters and grandchildren all helped to make the day special for her. We know that she would have enjoyed the day and the 'wake' that followed with everyone telling their own particular 'tale' about her.
When we organised the cremation we arranged to have some coloured helium balloons for the grandchildren and others to release after the service, we found that this immediately took everyones mind off of the service and focused it on children laughing and everyone, Priest included, watching the balloons disappear into the sky, most of them with written messages from the grandchildren.....it just lightened a sad day,.
I once again thank you for your messages and good wishes over what had become a very difficult time - they really were so appreciated.
Take care and god bless you all.
