    Default Dead Spread

    Well Saturday was the memorial service for Aunt Pinky (82). The service was
    real tearjerker as all her grandkids & children read a passage then shared
    some personal experiences. She was quite loved.

    The reception after was quite nice with many people bringing some thing to
    share.

    The basis was Costco ( I think) platters of croissant sandwiches &
    turkey+stuff roll-ups ( the mayo & dressings were in containers no little
    packets)
    There were several salads, including a red potato, bow tie pasta with
    salmon, tossed Green salad, macaroni Salad and a few others.
    Red & white wine, beer, soda, bottled water, coffee & tea. The dessert bar
    was sensational with enough chocolate to satisfy even the Cookie Monster.

    All in all it was a really good sendoff.

    Sorry about the loss of Aunt Pinky, please accept my condolences. This
    reminds us how short life is and we should appreciate every moment.

    Thank you - it was expected and a blessing although no one is ever really
    prepared for the passing of a loved one.

    I'll give it a B.

    The church I attend used to serve it that way, too. No more. Must've
    had a review by the health department or something. Leftovers would,
    I'm pretty sure, go back into the original container. I don't think
    you can do that. . .

    Nice. Dessert is important.

    She was lucky to have you in her life.

    You are very kind - but quite frankly I was the lucky one - Hearing her
    grandkids speak of Pinky gave me a real insight into being a grandparent.
