MH, the service and the video was beautiful.
What page is the video on, I can't see it.
MH, sounds like you did her proud.

Janet, the video was shown at the service. It's not posted on here.
No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There is only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to.

I'm so glad about this MH, in fact I was thinking of asking you to do just that but I didn't want to bother you when you have so much going on just now.

Thank you for that, perfect.
Would it be silly to ask for the Christmas Theme to stay for a full 12 months as a tribute and a nod to her joy and love for the season?
May we know them,
May we be them,
May we raise them.

Oh good. Was very vexed about the risk of it disappearing.
Maybe a long walk in the Hindu Kush would do it?

I lost my husband in July. Unexpected heart attack. I live in Houston and am here if you need anything. I met DS one time at a burger joint close to your house to pick up some Mary Kay!
Please let me know if you need anything.
