for friend who died suddenly. Beautiful service with touching stories from sons, one son's fiancee and friends. She was a sweet woman with a big heart for people and animals.

I was lead to believe from email she died New Yr's Eve after being with friends earlier,it was what I originally thought and that is she was found days later.

She came home that night, let her 3 dogs out in the fenced in yard, went upstairs, checked messages and email and was in the bathroom still dressed. When she didn't show up for work on Wednesday, that was a sign that something was wrong and bosslady called her son who was out of town who later her found her dead. The dogs had been outside for 3 nights and although she had fixed their meal that night they didn't get it because she died. Poor dogs. The dogs attended the service and one of her friend is taking 1 dog and her sister is taking the other and sister dogs who have always been together.

It was a beautiful service and very moving....I hope to have people remember me in such a kind way. A few folks talked about her seeking spirituality and of her being accepting of all religions....she was a seeker. The church where the service was held was not a main line religion and I've been there before, it's a very positive and uplifting service very much in tune with recovery principles.

Her son made a beautiful wooden urn to hold her ashes.
