      Dear Ginger:
      Thank you for the family group sheet, I noticed you did not have some of the detail to my grandmother's passing, Attached is her service pamphlet that my mother asked me to create for the funeral.
      It seems strange to anyone that may take time to notice, but the funeral was such a delay from the time of her passing, you see due to the wishes of Elda Sparks, her remains were cremated thus the funeral did not have to be rushed, the date of the funeral was decided by my mother to allow everyone to attend.
      Hope this is something you would want information on.
      PS The picture of Elda and Ray was taken by my husband at Mark and Janet Short's wedding so if you would like that picture let me know.
      Have a great day.
      Julie
