Moms Final Trip!!!

Hi: All...My mom came home this weekend to her final rest. She rode in an original Werther's Candy Tin and a purple drawstring, in a place of honour in my brothers MoHo. After two celebrations of her life, one in Ottawa, one in London, we laid her beside my father in Forest Lawn...
Singing was her pleasure and being a member of The Sunshine Singers... her favorite. Performing solos at nursing homes, and singing for my sons wedding usually brought out many emotions and tissues.
Her candy tin was always stocked with a generous supply of her favorite treat... Werther's, and every visitor knew where she kept the tin. Thanks MOM!!!

Re: Moms Final Trip!!!

Sorry to hear of your mothers passing, Alf. May she rest in peace.

I love what you chose for her urn. My father's urn was a John Deere cookie jar. He owned a John Deere dealership for many years, and sure loved his cookies.

Re: Moms Final Trip!!!

My condolences, I'm sorry for your loss.

What a great going away. I lost my father, who was the inspiration to acquire my Escape. We put his ashes prior to scattering at sea (he was a Navy man), in an ice cream container, as he loved ice cream.
