Pictures from the funeral

Stacey took a few pictures at the funeral. Most of the first shots are random photo's. The ones of people standing in a row are my kids, then some of the casket. I couldn't figure out how to get them on my blog, so here is the website.

Good to see my sister

I'm sure it hasn't been easy for her to travel since her husband Jim passed away a few years ago, but I'm glad she came. It was good to visit again.

Thank you!

Thanks for all the cards, emails and thoughts. It's been kind of nice connecting with some of you that I haven't heard from for a long time. Mom would have loved all the attention.

Thank you for your thoughts on Mom

Dear Cheryl & Les
Just received the news of Aunt Blanche and it made reflect on a love and kindness she had always given. She sent me this poem that sums up my feeling.
written by Joshua Liebman

There is never life without sadness.
There is never life without pain!
If one seeks in this world for true solace,
He seeks it, forever in vain.
So when you heart comes to the sorrow
Of losing some dear one you've known
Tis the touch of God's sickle at harvest
Since he reaps in the fields he has sown.
(Was going to add it to your blog but couldn't figure it out.)
I am truly grateful for our visit last summer.
Steve, Jin, Samantha & Daniel Robinson

Blanche Hyde Udy April 12, 2009

Mother passed away today at 1:25 pm today, Easter Sunday. We were in Oregon spending Easter with Whitnie, Lindsay and families and got a call from the nursing home in Nampa about 7:30 am, so we got in the car and tried to make it home. She died about 2 hours before we got there. Friends of ours from church stopped by to see her and the hospice nurse was there with her, but our friends stayed and held her hand till she died. They said it was very peaceful and she never woke up. One of the male nurses at the hospital said " I want you to know I loved your mom and she loved compliments. She liked to give them too, but she really loved to get them." I just thought that was so cute. We donated her clothing to others that didn't have much, in the nursing home, and just brought home her personal items. It will seems strange not to go there anymore. I went twice a day everyday until this week end.

I will go tomorrow to the funeral home to make arrangements. Tentatively the funeral will be Sat.
No viewing and she put in her will Graveside services only. So we will respect her wishes. We really don't expect anyone to come from out of town, except probably some family.

She loved you all and felt your love and prayers in her time of need.
