The Play & The Funeral

We went to Anne's play tonight. It was about taking care of the earth. Her singing solo was beautiful. We stayed for a couple pictures, then ran to the funeral. When we got there it was over, and people were heading into the fellowship Hall for visitation and food. We took a plate and sat down to chat with friends. I'm so glad I went to see Anne, and so sorry I missed the actual funeral. Such is life. Thank you all SO very much for your comments of support, it means a lot to me. So here are the pictures fresh off the camera card!  You can see how happy she was that we came!

Ginny, I think your friend would have said go to Anne's show. She looked very sweet and it had such an important message. So sorry again about your friend. Big hug to you.

I think you made the best choice! So sorry for losing your friend....I have lost a few myself. It's hard. Your granddaughter will long remember that you were THERE for her big night!!

I know we are blogging as well as Facebook friends....and I want you to know how much I appreciate your comments, frienship and support. For some reason I only see your posts from time to time. I need to check my settings because I DO want to be at least as much of an encouragment to YOU as YOU are to ME!!

In my opinion, you did right by attending her program and hearing her solo. You made one young girl VERY happy.

Ann said...

so glad you went to see Anne Marie. The smile on her face says how much she appreciated it.

You had your friend in your heart which is the most important way of honoring her. I think Anne Marie and grandmother both look happy to be together. Joy!

Best,

Anne Marie looks wonderful on the stage and singing! She does look really happy :-) I'm sure your friend would be glad you didn't miss the event, and would want to let you know that you don't have to feel sorry.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!!

I'm sorry you had such a hard choice, but I do think your friend would've wanted you to see her sing. Any good friend would be understanding of that!

I am late as usual - but I too think you made the right choice. Your friend is in Heaven and she knows you love her - your granddaughter is HERE!

So glad you got to see that beautiful granddaughter sing her first (of many, hopefully) solos... That is SO special...

Sorry you didn't make it to the funeral --but you did what you NEEDED to do....

Great pictures of you and Anne... You look great, Ginny.. How much weight have you lost now?

Hugs,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Hi Ginny, You made a good decision. Family is oh-so-important and your Granddaughter's solo was quite important and a good memory for her. So, you did well. My condolences about losing your friend. You are in my prayers.

You did the right thing and I know that your friend would have wanted you to go to the play. Again..I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.
I know that Anne Marie sang so beautifully. She is a doll...

She will grow up to be a beautiful sweet lady in a few years time, Ginny.. sooner or later, you will have to screen through her "fans!" :)

Life is for the living. Your friend will always be in memory. Both were happy.
