My mother would have loved her own funeral. A crisp, sunny morning in Marin County surrounded by her children, grandchildren and long time friends and neighbors. The eulogies delivered by my three magnificent brothers were heartfelt, moving and funny as hell.
My niece Erin Marie represented the grandchildren eloquently, bragging on her grandmother’s ability to hold a perfect plank at the gym for five minutes. My sister Mary and her husband Larry covered all the details of the mass and the reception.
We played this photo montage with a music bed of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” one of mom’s favorite songs. In her childhood pictures, the lookalike next to her is twin brother Joseph.
