Sandy Schmidt's Memorial Service 9-10-13

  It was so hard to get through the service.. my heart was breaking to say the final GoodBye to my BFF of  almost 20 years.. I love you Sandy.. Always will.... I got to hold Baby Chloe... Sandy's precious new grand baby.
 The doll's and flowers sat around the sanctuary at Sandy's Memorial service.. her sewing machine, her favorite throw quilts, dolls she had made and a wonderful smelling tart warmer burning and pictures of her family.. it was all definitely Sandy. Todd did a beautiful job in making it a tribute to Sandy and her life.
 The prayer quilt that Sandy kept on her during her hospital stay and was on her when she took her last breath. It draped the main table in front of the sanctuary along with pictures of her, Todd and their daughter Samantha and of course baby Chloe..Sandy's brand new and only grandchild.
 My daughter Celena Jem,  Sandy's hubby Todd and me @ the luncheon that was served after her memorial service.

 I stopped by Sandy's house on our way out of town heading back home after the service. Sandy's cat Crybaby, came out meowing @ me when I got out of the car. I picked her up and held her. She seemed to know what was going on. I wanted to say goodbye for now....
