Thanks for the reminder on that series of PM Manuals. I keep forgetting about them

Thank you all again for the kindness you've shown.
I kept my promise to Mama that I would take her home! I'm glad that I wrote down things I wanted to share with the family and friends before the ringing of the bell. Thank goodness I did that because it was hard to read, much less try to remember everything I wanted to say. My Grandma's baby sister *only sibling left* was touched deeply and thanked me several times for honoring Mama in such a special way.
I was scared the timing would be off but within one minute of me finishing my tribute, the hearst turned into the driveway and I gave the first ring of the bell. When they stopped briefly at her front walkway, I rang it for the second time and my emotions hit full force. The third ring of the bell was when they stopped at the end of the driveway. The joy I felt for honoring her in this way is something I'll always carry with me. I know without a doubt that she knew what was going on and that she was smiling down at me. I felt a sense of peace with the third sound of the bell.
God bless you all for the thoughts and prayers.
When things settle down, I will be back asking questions about our new toy...or hubby's new toy! Thanks for all of the info and links for me to check out!
