Dear family and friends,
I am sending you this letter to inform you that my mother, Myrtle, passed away at the Christian Community Home in Hudson on September 8th, 2003 at 6:15 PM. She passed away peacefully, asleep in her bed without distress or pain.
In honor of my mom's wishes, prior to her death, her body has been cremated and we will not be having a formal funeral service. Instead, we will be having a gathering to "Remember and Celebrate" her life.
This will take place on Saturday, September 20th, 2003 from 1PM to 4PM with a prayer service and sharing time around 2PM in the cafeteria at:
United Methodist Church
1401 Laurel Ave.
Hudson, WI 54016
* Included is a map highlighting the church's location. Please come and join us in this celebration of my mom's life. Also, please feel free to call or write me with any questions you may have. My address and phone number is:
1165 Goldfinch Dr.
Waconia, MN 55387
Note to family members. I've tried to send this letter to as many cousins as I have addresses for. Please let your siblings know as well.
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.
