The viewing was beautiful. The funeral parlor that Mom chose before her passing is gorgeous. It is a spacious facility with a fireplace, cafe, huge bathrooms, and an enormous viewing area. There are photographs and family photo albums that were displayed on a wood counter. Mom had at least thirty bouquets of flowers and plants near her, most of them pink or complementing the pink roses near her. Pink was her favorite color. So many wonderful people from the past and present came in despite the frigid temperatures to give their condolences. The evening was surreal. A fog.
