What is the latest on this? I am at my dads (more on that later) but hope to see this done.

What website are we using? 1800flowers.com, justflowers.com, etc.?
Do we know where the funeral/visitation is being held?
Someone should write up a note. I don't care what it says, as long as it mentions the ToO and says we're praying. :)

Since it sounds like we don't have a delivery address yet, I can e-mail InMemoryOfLisaH@gmail.com and see if somebody there can give us an address and the best time for delivery. I also would ask if we could send extra funds to her mom to help with funeral costs or to donate to something in SNC's memory. :) I'll just wait for Top to let me know he hasn't already done this, so we aren't harassing them multiple times.

Top, there's a PM coming your way about Paypal. :)

Whenever the order is placed, there are some coupon codes available to save $5-$10 at least on retailmenot.com. :)

Call it wild if you want and they may not even be able to do it but here is the idea. She was considering running for admin, if they have the option, could we get a white ribbon with SNC or something in admin color?

I found it! This site also has a really nice obituary about her.

105 Avenida Del Fuego
Belen, NM 87002-6101

To make it easier, the website has a button called "Send Flowers", which links to a more expensive flower site. I don't care what we get, as long as we get something sent on time. One of you girls should probably write the note. ;)

We have roughly $200 in donations to play with... so yeah, someone write something and suggest whatever arrangements you think we should use and I can get this ordered tonight.

We can use all the money on this or go with sending some to World Vision or whatever charity.

Since I'm not able to donate... I should keep out of this probably... But I think either LI or Catspaw should pick it out. Which site were you using?

I e-mailed the memory e-mail, as I said I would, and the flowers should actually be sent to a different address. I'll send it to Top, since he's the one placing the order. Her mom also had the suggestion of the following two organizations for where we could designate the extra funds: mercyships.org and fameworld.org. I've heard of Mercy Ships before, but I'm sure they're both worthy organizations. That said, there are endless good organizations out there! We just need to choose one for the funds collected here, but if anybody has their own place they would like to donate to individually, of course they are more than welcome to do so!

I don't have time to look through the arrangements now, so if somebody else finds one they really like, please post the link! Otherwise, I'll take a look later, but anybody is welcome to make a suggestion!

if we're using justflowers.com (don't feel like you have to)

This or or this I thought were both very pretty. But reasonably priced, so you would have plently left over for donating to a charity. :yes: And again... those were just suggestions, since you said you wanted some. I really do not care what you choose. :)

I looked for ones with red flowers, since that was her favorite color, and came up with a few. :)

This one here is nice, with the cross, however it's pretty expensive and would use up the entire amount of money:
http://www.justflowers.com/affiliates/f ... s=1.49.9.1

This one is cheaper - even the Premium version is only about half what we have, leaving a good amount for charity:
http://www.justflowers.com/affiliates/f ... =1.85.15.1

And here are a couple more options as well:
http://www.justflowers.com/affiliates/f ... s=1.11.2.5
http://www.justflowers.com/affiliates/s ... =1.78.13.6

What are everyone's opinions on those?

Hmm.... I vote for either the next to last one or the last one. :yes: That's just my humble opinion of course. ;) I think the standing one is my favorite.

Yeah, I don't really care. Just DECIDE people! :x And get some message drafts up here, too. ;)

What ratio of flowers/charity do we want? I... haven't clicked on any of the above links yet so I'm not sure what ballpark we're in. >_>
