Grant and Kate came home Tuesday, and we had Grants Aunty Marg and her daughter Kat arrive too to stay. It felt comforting having people around again. Kate and I stayed up until 2am Wednesday morning, me scanning in a whole lot of pics for the Slideshow, while Kate created the Scrolls to give out to everyone, then it was time to print off just over 100 of them, scroll them and tie ribbon around them! It was one very long night, but comforting in the fact knowing that I was helping and contributing.
The boys absolutely adored having Marg & Kat stay with us. Cooper just fell in love with Kat and wouldn't leave her alone. Wednesday afternoon was hard, going the viewing, I had never been to one before and I can't say I liked it much. I had expected to see that gorgeous smile Netty had left on her face in the hospital but it was gone, and that broke my heart.
Thursday was the funeral and what a beautiful funeral it was. Sad Sad Sad, I don't think I have cried so much in all my life, but it paid tribute to the wonderful person she was, everyone captured Netty's spirit, I felt so comforted by Netty's family. I had Milly on one side of me as we helf hands and comforted each other, Aunty Marg on the other at one stage. Gosh the tears just poured. The music was perfect. Truly Netty! The slideshow was spectacular, capturing her life from when she was a little Dutch girl, to having a family, her grandchildren, her love of the beach and sunbathing, it was just perfect! Afterwards it was great to see all the family, reminiscing on old memories, celebrating Netty's life!Netty you will be sadly missed by all!
