On our way home from our last trip to CA, we received the call that Matt's grandmother had passed away. Our one last trip to CA before China turned into two as we travelled back for her memorial services. She had been ill for some time and had led a full and long life. The service really felt like a celebration of a life lived rather than lost. It turned out beautifully-mostly music. All of the great-grandkids sang and Noah and his cousin Maya sang a duet. It was really sweet and we now have a CD of all of the musical numbers to enjoy. For some reason, this is the only picture that I took that day but it is a great idea. Some friends of the family helped put together a memory table with pictures of Ilan throughout her life and all of her family members. The whole day was a lovely tribute.
