A few days ago we had a small family graveside burial service for Mom on the beautiful & sacred grounds of The Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida which is designated for Military Veterans and their Spouses. Mom served our country as the spouse of a serviceman for 15 of Dad's 20 years in the US Air Force. Dad wanted to honor Mom and send her off in style so he reserved a stretch limousine to drive us to Bushnell while Mom's casket was driven in a beautiful white hearse by Taylor Family Funeral Home. Dad also arranged for the quilt that draped Mom's casket to be folded like an American flag and presented to Traci - their firstborn child and my awesome Sister. I wore my Easter dress shirt to represent the resurrection, and Laurie did a fantastic job making a floral arrangement for Mom's casket and burial site. Dave & Carson helped wheel Mom's casket to the pavilion for the short service. It was a really good day and a wonderful final goodbye done in style, dignity, and honor... worthy of the amazing woman Mom is and the legacy she leaves =). See you in Heaven Birddog! Love you more!!
Special thanks to the entire staff at Taylor Family Funeral Home of Pinellas Park for doing such a loving, caring, & expert job helping us every step of the way along this journey. God bless you guys!
