Memorial for Lulu

This month we lost our dear friend and walking encyclopedia, Lulu Harris.  Yesterday a memorial was held for her at her home.  Her children told stories of their life with Lula and stories of her adventures.  She was a sweet, gentle person with a strong will. I never heard her speak ill of anyone and her children said she never did. But for one exception - she could not stand Billy Mays.  We all laughed to hear that.
Some of us read notes from others, some gave their own thoughts.  We will miss Lulu. We have been missing her for some time. It is good to know that she did not linger in the twilight of a dwindling mind but went out gently and in a short period with no pain. Lulu lived a good life and ended it in a good way with her little dog Pepper at her side. We have some good memories, Lulu.  Thank you for being with us.

Thank you so much for the post about Lulu. I really think she would approve of her send off. I hope everyone who attended will plant their wildflower seed paper and think of her when the flowers bloom.

I'm sorry, but I just couldn't be there on Saturday. There is way too much going on here in my life. But Lulu is in my thoughts and prayers daily. We are all going to miss her so much.
