Last night was Mom's viewing and it was wonderful. There were over three hundred people that came by to pay their respect to an incredible woman. There were tears shed but lots of laughter. The viewing was supposed to last from 6 to 8 but people began showing up before 6 and lasted until around 9:30. We got in the car to go eat dinner at about 9:45.
The suit we picked for Mom looked really good. The funeral home did a good job on getting her dressed. It didn't look quite like her because, well, her body has been through hell for the last eight months but you could still catch a glimpse of her. What was missing was her beautiful smile and her incredible eyes. I always thought that my Mom was a pretty lady but looking at pictures over the past few days, I realized that my Mom was stunning. She had the most beautiful blue eyes and a smile that lit up a room.
The flowers. . . . .Mom would have been so proud. They are so pretty and there were so many.
