After the graveside service a luncheon will be provided for family/relatives by Mom's ward/church family back at the church!

We need to get a head count of family members planning to attend any of the services and luncheon so the appropriate number of seats are saved and enough food is provided.

*how many in your party, (even if it's tentative...we need an approximate idea)

If you can not make it we will miss you but totally understand!

Renae & family: I am so sorry to hear your dear mother had passed on. I can't imagine the mixed emotions you are feeling amid exhaustion but how wonderful you got to spend her last moments on earth serving her.

I remember spending Christmas with your family just before I moved to AZ and your mom was so thoughtful and got me my own stocking filled with sunscreen and aloe! I remember making brownies with you, her and Michelle and singing and dancing to the jukebox in the kitchen. Good times! She was so beautiful and classy.

My prayers are with you and your family at this time. I will be thinking of you on Friday. God Bless, Christi Billquist

Dear Renae, Michelle and Ron:
Ron, thank you for sending me your phone number(s) so I could have some time with Sandie - it was very nice of you to do that. Ron, I really like what you wrote as a farwell to your loving wife.
Michelle, thank you for your friendly talks on the phone - your mother spoke of you often and how much she enjoyed you and her grandchildren. I used to kid her about having frequent air miles for all her trips to Salt Lake. May God bless you and your family and your new child to come.
Reane - what a troper you are. Organizing this blog and all of the activities at the house - you are an amazing women and from what I see and hear, a lot like your Mom.
As you may have guessed, Sandie and I were special friends and she has a place in my heart that will never go away - she spoke about my grieving about my Mom who passed away this passed September, but I knew she was also telling me how to grieve for her - Linda was laughing when she was telling me this as I was not allowed to speak until your Mom had her say first. You know I would be there if I could, but the distance is just too far for me, but know that I am there in spirit.
May the Lord bless you and give you His peace in your time of loss.
Love, Gary
