Happy Cinco DeMayo....
today was the memorial party for my DIL's Mom...
we had it here at our place...
It was HOT today....in the 90's...

she had requested a party when she passed...
that is what her daughters gave her....



oops...little britches balloon got loose...
I thought forsure he would be really upset...
instead he got a kick out of watching it fly away...


guess what he did with the next balloon he got a hold of....

bye bye balloon...fly way far away....
he wanted to turn them all loose...
to fly fly away....




It was a day to say goodbye to his Meme...
my DIL and her sister gave a very nice party...
their Mom would have been proud...

The lady wanted a Memorial Party to be held! Great!!!! She must have been a great gal!

Never heard of this, but I certainly like it.

I want no wake or viewing hours. And I want to be cremated. I ought to add a Party, to my requests!!!!!
