chocake2:
it was only after they had left that I remembered that I was supposed to get a picture

Hmm, selective memory I think...  LOL

A picture of Sprout's head bump greeting would have been cute, but as Gini pointed out, we don't need a picture of her and Sam to remember what they look like.

I'm not that devious Nancy...  ;-P

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

This is a hard time for you, do take the time you need to grieve. I lost a older brother 3.5 years ago, it was a sudden thing and then painful was having to pay for some of the cost as he had no insurance and no other family( wife , kids). Dealing with Funeral home are bad enough to make one want to scream ! If money is an issue as was for us, do what is right for you and your family. All the little things add up and may not be a big deal. I only suggest that you do an obituary as when someone does a family tree in the future, it will be nice for them to see pictures and know more about the person. I know you did not ask for this information, I hope I am not coming across as harsh. I am sorry that your going through this. Quilting to me is an emotional time, it allows me to think about so many different emotions. If you want to do any quilting, do one that is easy and relaxing.   ((hugs))

Marie:

Linda, enjoy your weekend with Jan.  Maybe you could get her interested in some sort of handwork instead of TV.  Perfect convert!

Marie, I've been trying for 25 years! She prefers to watch me sew and watch TV.

IS, you are so right . We are here for you to lean on when you need it and even when you don't need it, we are here.   Just like the song- lean on me.  Now I am going to be humming that song all day.   That's okay, I love that song. I just can't think of the singer right now.    Ginny

Is, please add me to the list sending your cyber hugs for your loss. I will keep you in my prayers that God gives you the inner strength to get through this.   I can't imagine how difficult it would be to have to make all the final arrangements.  There are still several items that we need to deal with from my mom's passing that none of us are really able to handle as yet. 

And I'm finding that this past weekend it hit me really hard that she is gone.  I'm still not dealing well today, but I'm at work and going to make an effort.  I was holding it in untill yesterday, and I really don't even know what set it off.  But I have been right on the edge of tears since last evening.  Gonna be a challenging day today.  Please keep me in your prayers today as well.

 The singer of that song was Bill Withers. I looked it up on Wikipedia. It drives me crazy to try to remember something like that and can't.

IS my In-laws and my parents have been gone a long time, but somedays just the thought of a song or flower or almost anything they liked makes me want to cry. It's better to let it out, cry and talk about your feeling. I know it helps me.

I'm still going through pics with family members, and i'm trying to construct something with pictures not sure how to do it though because i like material of coarse i'm thinking of using material but in our run to6 fh' seen something like age progression pic about 5x7 size 5 pics all together and it would attach by velcro to casket liner the part that stays up during service don't know if i should use foam board or matting board.  Any ideas please let me know i've never been really crafty .

Oh I wanted to apologise for talking about sad subject and rekindling emotions of others.

Is,

There is no need to apologise, thats what we are here for to share not only the good times but the bad, I know when my mum died in November i would have struggled a lot more without the friendship and help and prayers from everyone on here.

lots of love and prayers

Francesxx

Is, we are here to support one another so there is no need to apologize. Most of us have had a turn at "crying on the shoulder" of this group. Some of us more than once.

Using foam board would be good if you are going to wrap in fabric. It doesn't bend and is light weight.

You are in my prayers...may God wrap His comforting arms around you and give you peace. Is, remember the good times...believe it helps get through the grief. Sending you hugs.
