There was a memorial service for my cousin at the NH where she spent the last 5 years of her life. It was good to reconnect with those who were a part of her life and to share in the closure. Besides the Bible readings, we sang 'Blessed Assurance', 'Because He Lives' and 'Amazing Grace'. The staff gave out roses. The chaplain spoke and there was a poem, prayers and a blessing. It was peace-filled.

    Sorry for your loss Patricia.

My DH just got back from a service for his Aunt. It is important to connect with family and say goodbye.
