Everything went really well. The friends from church attended en masse, the pastor and assistant pastor were very encouraging and inspirational. The funeral home went out of their way to facilitate everything. We definitely celebrated her…"

"Well after the harsh winter here, I don't blame you for wanting to be in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. I hope your home sells quickly just so you don't have to be on guard for any potential buyers coming through. Keep us posted."
"The font Gremlins are at it again! So yes, Barbara, you've had quite the experience. Glad that things have balanced themselves out again. I do recall as a girl, my grandma would cook dandelion greens. She had lived through the Big…"

I love dining out with friends or just going for a nice cuppa coffee. I am getting back into life by doing things I never had time to before. Movies, plays, museums, the list is endless. Good books (audio).

Am so so sorry for taking so long to your request, I haven't been on for ever. After moving back into the states in December, It set me back emotionally plus I have had two more moves since December. I don't think I have come to complete acceptance that I moved to Canada and then back to the U.S after 30 years in the making.. Well that's enough about me, how are you and what has the group been up too...
