WOYWW 5-17-17

Just a quick post today. I haven't been making cards lately, because all of my time and energy have gone to planning my brother's memorial service and getting the house company ready.

We had the service on May 6th. Here is the bulletin I created.

I didn't take a picture of the inside, but on the inner front cover there was a short biography, and on the other page the order of service.

Here is the photo collage in its final glory. 

And here it is on the memorial table.

The Scripture on the table seems appropriate,  doesn't it?

I was very happy that all of my extended family was able to come. I haven't seen a lot of them in 6 years! Here is a group photo taken in our living room. 

I have a better photo somewhere but can't find it right now. Anyway, this is me, one hubby, 2 daughters, 1 son-in-law, 6 grandchildren, 1 sister, 2 nephews, 1 niece, and 1 great-nephew. Whew! The only person missing is my poor brother-in-law, who flew 500 miles only to get sick.

Hmmm, I  guess this post is a bit longer than I had planned! Hubby and I are taking a much needed break in Wisconsin for a couple of weeks. The service and the visiting with family was a unique mix of sorrow and joy.  We all vowed to get together more often and not just for sad occasions.

Have a great week and be sure to visit some very talented crafters at
