Debbie,

Set it up in an Excel worksheet.  You can even put the names out in the first column and have it add it at the bottoms of all the columns.  I might be able to walk you through it if you are not familiar with Excel, but I don't have it on the home computer at this time.

Quiltless:
(Montana is a very big state to drive across!  I now have a much greater appreciation for audio books.)

 You drove across MT and you didn't stop and say 'Hi'??  HrmmpH... I think I might take offense.

Na. ...I won't either. 'Takes too much energy to be offended

 Congrats on getting to spend a special day with your mother. What a wonderful way to do it!

My un-day passed away late last night. Some of the light has gone out of our world. I know that he didn't have to stop and  check in at the pearly gates. He was awarded a golden pass-key a long time ago.

CC I am so so sorry. Be glad that you managed to spend time with him. It is not easy but as you say he already had his pass into heaven.

Big hugs xxx

CC- so very sorry to hear about your Un-dad passing away last night! I'm sure you're right----he had a special pass, entitling him to go right through! I believe the same when my Dad passed away 5 years ago about a week before Mothers' Day. Hey! maybe my Dad escorted him through the "pearly gates"! Hope you find that as comforting as I do! I'll through my 2 cents in, but as my time is limited on the PC, I can't post it in the preferred way. Would someone mind adding mine to the chart? I have 1 son, 1 daughter and 1 grand daughter. As a matter of fact, they came to stay with us for a little while. They'll return home in 2 weeks. What a special treat the last month has been! Gotta go! Big hugs!

CC I am sooo sorry for the loss of your un-dad.  Prayers going up for all of you.  So happy you and your family were able to be with him one more time.  Just keep thinking of the joy you all brought him in that visit.  Sprout probably won't remember how happy he made un-dad but the rest of you will.  Keep that close.  Hugs and love to all of you, my friend.

Quiltless, your post brought  tears to my eyes.  What a wonderful thing you did for you and your mom.  You've made memories you won't forget.  I wish I could've been there to see her happy smiling face, to be with her daughter again.  (((((HUGS)))))

Sorry CC.

Today I got phone calls from both daughters, my son, and a grandson. Went to a 50th anniversary party for my long-time friends, had supper at my sons. Did grocery shopping, and am now ready to go to sleep. I am very tired.

No quilting today,
