Today we attended services for John’s grandmother at Forest Lawn in Glendale. In lieu of a memorial service, there was a viewing time open to friends and family. At 95, grandma had outlived most of her friends, but there were still several family members and neighborhood friends who stopped in to pay their respects. We then proceeded to the gravesite for a simple service of remembrance and reflection on her life. At the end of the service, we each released butterflies to signify the transformation into new life.
Rest in Peace Catherine Mary Clark.
