I'm so sorry for your loss, Darkside. My condolences to your family.  Even when it's expected and the loved one has lived a long and happy life, it is not an easy thing to deal with.

On behalf of my extended family, thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.

We had a beautiful mass for my grandmother at the end of the week.  We decided not to hold a viewing at the funeral home but to instead have her privately cremated and to just hold a 'Celebration Of Her Life' mass at her church parish with a quiet reception downstairs in the church basement hall.  Lots of memories with her and the family while growing up.  My cousin made DVD copies of an old video of my grandma and her late husband that was back in 1990 when they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  

The mass was a bilingual service in both French and English as the main minister only spoke French as he came from Paris France.  The other minister spoke both French and English.  Also, both ministers were close friends of my grandparents and the bilingual minister officiated at my aunt's wedding.

My aunt and uncle now are keeping the urn with my grandmother's ashes until next spring when she will be laid to rest at her grave beside her late husband in her home town of Frampton, Quebec.

Hi all, This coming weekend, I'll be away with my dad's family taking my grandmother's ashes to rest in her home town of Frampton, Quebec.  I'll be staying in Levis (45min - 1hr drive from Frampton) during the jaunt.

We'll be having a service for her with her surviving relatives.

These are a couple of photos of her urn and the enclosure a close friend of the family made for her.

The enclosure is oak with purple heart for the accents on the sides.

Sandra Bruckner from the B5 fan community.  She recently lost her battle with cancer.

She'll be deeply missed by those that knew her.
