Mom was very stoic during her reading. Brenda & Lisa both read their memories. John & I let Kenny read ours. I was touched by Donnie's. We laughed, we cried, we hugged. so good to see old friends and neighbors and relatives. They gave Mom the ashes today. That seems a bit strange, a whole lifetime summed up in a little white cardboard box with a name label on it...
