    Thanks. There is a guestbook there too where we can sign.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    OK, we need to get the wheels rolling as we have been given to "go ahead" to find a loving home for Annie and Emma. When I get home later today I will get pictures posted and share, share and share on FB as well as here. For those techie people (Catty?) feel free to search out pictures of them posted in the past by Gini. Also, Gini's younger brother will be emailing Kelly and I some recent pictures of Annie and Emma. Apparently, they could both use a bit of a kitty diet....

    The memorial was just as Gini would have wanted it - few tears and many belly laughs.

    What a wonderful person. I'm so sorry for her loss. My deepest sympathy to her family and all who love her and grieve her so very much.

    Rest in peace, dearest Gini. greeted with so much love by so many beloved friends at the Bridge.

    I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

    So, I went to Gini's Memorial yesterday ... It was beautiful and exactly what Gini would have wanted. Her loved ones keeping it positive and remembering her when she was healthy and happy. I know she was there laughing and crying with us. The speeches given by her family and Pam were so touching and reminded me how many people she had in her life praying for and loving her. I know that while there were a lot of people there, there were countless that couldn't be - lives she touched as well.
    Here are a few pics - I also recorded the speeches, but need to ask permission before I post them here, I hope you all understand. I signed the guest book for the PTers too - so you were all there.

    Here are a few pics. First is Slick and I having breakfast at the Roof - atop her hotel. Gini sure sent us a beautiful day, didn't she?

    Second is of the guest book table - that beautiful arrangement was sent by Pam, Gini's good friend and neighbor.

    The third is the guestbook I signed for PTers that couldn't be there. More coming...

    OK, more pics…
    The first one is Gini's brother Bill…

    Second is Slick and I holding hands - it was so very nice having Slick there with me. It was nice to be comforted when I needed it.

    The third is of a picture of Rascal I brought - sitting on one of the flower arrangements w Gini at its center. They are together now.

    Fourth is a better view of Gini in her flowers.

    And more…

    1. This is what Mike, her brother passed out to everyone. Its the website he created so we can upload pictures and share Gini stories.

    2. Gini LOVED chocolate, so her nieces set up this candy bar with all her favorites - including a platter of her See's top 3!

    3. We all knew Gini loved
    PINK!!!These are the napkins they used, keeping with her favorites.

    4. Some of the guests and one of the two areas we were in.

    A funny thing happened on the way to New Westminster. My plane landed right on time, I took the shuttle to where I parked my car, started it up and waited for the gate to open. My heart sang for there in front on me was the most brilliant rainbow and it was the whole arc, not just half of it and it gleamed across the blue sky to guide me home. I thought.....there's the sign from Gini. She's made it safely to the Bridge wants me to know that she's OK. It was very comforting and given that Richard said to watch out for something "gini" well, I'll take this one. I did get a picture of the start of it - couldn't get the whole rainbow because there was no where to pull over in traffic. I'll offload it from my camera tonight.

    What a beautiful tribute to our beautiful friend.
    Slick what a gift! I'm so glad you got your "sign" keep a lookout - now rainbows may show up in all the strangest places!!
    Thank you Kelly for the pics - for those of us that couldn't be there - it helps.
    My heart is still heavy in missing my friend but knowing she is ALWAYS with us now, helps. Now, like with my grandma and Phred, I can talk to her anytime, anywhere and I know she'll hear me.

    This was on a throw from my Grandma Musselman's funeral and its become a favorite of mine when someone (or my pets Kylie, Keegan, Shaianne) close to me died.


    "If Tears Could Build A Stairway"

    If tears could build a stairway,
    and memories a lane.
    I would walk right up to Heaven
    and bring you back again.

    No farewell words were spoken,
    No time to say "Goodbye".
    You were gone before I knew it,
    and only God knows why.

    My heart still aches with sadness,
    and secret tears still flow.
    What it meant to love you -
    No one can ever know.

    But now I know you want me
    to mourn for you no more;
    To remember all the happy times
    life still has much in store.

    Since you'll never be forgotten,
    I pledge to you today~
    A hollowed place within my heart
    is where you'll always stay.

    I haven't been on pt in a long while and randomly logged on tonight. I cannot believe what I am reading. I had no idea Gini was sick for so long, and am deeply saddened to hear this news. To God we belong and to Him we return. I remember enjoying reading Gini's posts when I used to frequent this site. She was a lovely, kind hearted person.
