Saturday 09/24/16 Sue and I drove up to Ossipee, NH for Sue's Mom's Memorial Service.
We had gone up Friday and spent the day making arrangements for today's service. It had been a long day; so many things to do. We didn't get back home until around 10:00pm, and we were both exhausted.
The memorial service was at the Effingham Falls Cemetary in the Stoddard family site. It was a simple service, officiated by Mary Edes who not only provide comforting words for the family, but sang several very moving songs as a tribute.
After the memorial service, everyone drove into Ossipee to the Ossipee Concerned Citizens (O.C.C.) center for a Celebration Of Life gathering. Joanne was an active member of this community, and many of her Bingo playing friends came to share a meal with us.
