We said goodbye...


In the same manner as we did back in January with my grandmother, we held a small memorial in our backyard today to say goodbye to Collette. I had purchased purple and white balloons and some lillies and we went out in to the field behind our house, each said a goodbye and then released the balloons with the flowers tied to them. I always tell Michael that when a balloon flies away that it goes to someone we love in heaven. We truly hope that these reached her.

Rest in peace, Collette. May our Heavenly Father be holding you close this day. You were loved. You will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I'm sure the balloons and all the love that went into them have reached her and she is in a better place. God Bless you and your family.

I've been thinking about you today; that was a beautiful memorial that you did; I'm sure that she is resting in the arms of her heavenly Father, and she knows how much you loved her.

I'm so sorry, but what a great way to say goodbye. I will add an extra prayer for her and you tonight.

I know that it hurts now, but it might help to ease the pain a bit to keep in mind that all of their troubles are now over. Hopefully, the time apart will pass quickly.
