The event was held at a beautiful country club. The beginning was traditional with hymns, a priest speaking, a friend who gave a heartfelt eulogy and bagpipes (those bagpipes get to me every time). Then the party began…there was a live band playing Lisa’s favorite songs, plenty of food, delicious cake, and an open bar.
