    We were very pleased with everything, especially with how our mother looked. She was beautiful. As one relative had put it "She was a beautiful woman in life and a beautiful woman in death." Not only did she look pretty, but she also looked very peaceful. We appreciated that Mike and Niki suggested displaying some of Mother's quilts for the funeral and the viewing. It was a great idea.
