_______________About Us__________

 

This site was started after planning my grandmothers life celebration.  My mother is an only child and was not able to make the arrangements on her own.  As a result a bulk of the responsibility fell on me.  My first task began before grandma passed, I had to call everyone and let them know that she was being sent to the hospice.  Second, I had to create a calendar and plug in task that I would need to complete. Third, we started to work on the obituary. It took us a week to get all the details in order. During this time I searched for tools to make our planning easier, however, I didn't find anything.

 It is my sincere hope that this site will make your time of grief a little easier by providing inspiration, comfort, and a sense of serenity and peace while making arrangements. You will note throughout the site there are links to others sites, poems and quotes, the charts may be useful as well. 

In the future we will have a feature available that will allow you to have a webpage through us in order to keep everyone involved and informed.  It should come in very handy as it will free you from having to repeat information to different people and free your time to make final arrangements. If you have any suggestion or comments please do not hesitate to contact me.

____________________About Grandma

 

During the life celebration of my grandmother one word was chosen to describe....... love.  Willa Clark (April 17, 1917-January 20, 2007) loved everyone, especially her small family. She showed and said it each and every time should would see you.  She  loved to cook for her family and friends and took great care to always listen and give the best advice. She also loved trees and flowers. When she went to stay with my parents in a suburb of Chicago she commented on how she always loved the area for all the beautiful trees.

Some of her favorite things where:

  • Andes Candies (We passed these out at her funeral)
  • Fanny May Turtles
  • Salami & Cracker
  • The color blue
  • Shopping
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • The Star Gossip Paper
  • Anything that had to do with counting or numbers
  • Lou Rawls
  • Perry Mason
  • Bishop Brazier of Apostolic Church in Chicago
  • Joel Olsten of Texas

She was very generous to family, friends, and strangers and always encouraging those of us who were blessed by God to help the less fortunate. She also gave the very best hugs.

She is dearly missed and the link below is to a poem that pens exactly how I feel about her.

In Memory of You
