Mom was under Hospice Care for the two weeks prior and was well cared for by Nurse Eleanor Parnell, Who lovingly made Moms passing much easier to deal with for us all.
At theMom did not want a funeral service, But she said it was ok to have a small get together and talk about the good old days and make a toast to all the fond memories. we had get together to remember Mom and little something to eat and drink.
She also directed us to spread her ashes over by Point Pelee, Canada, where we had a cottage back in the 60s and where we spread my Dads ashes back in 1995.
I'm planing on planing on placing a small amount of Moms ashes in to three Chanel No. 5 perfume containers, The same perfume bottles I've seen on Moms vanity since I can remember. one for Sherry , one for John and one for Me. Mom and I talked about this shortly after Dad passed and she was all for the idea especially when I told her my plans to have a small plot in my yard decorated in her style ( with pink carnations) and that if I ever move I will take her with me.
