We made it! The services were beautiful. She filled the church, Our Lady of the Snows. It was emotional, but we got inspiration to let her go. I was a teary mess and did not want to let go of my beautiful balloon. But I did.
Her Book of Hours was a great place for all to sign in. I now plan to take it and put quotes and photos in for her children to put away and look at when they want to.
Making stuff is what I need to do. My studio is a mess. I will clean it later. Now I just want to absorb myself in quotes that fit my wonderful sister-in-law and best friend.
