Indeed.

Does anyone know if the family received the flowers? Well, I'm sure a lot of other flowers were sent, so we may never know...

It might be nice to get a picture if that’s possible.

I never was told if they showed up or not, but I'm pretty sure they charged my credit card so they better have! :x

Although actually when I'm on my own computer later I will double check that to make sure.

The day after I ordered I got a phone call while at work (so I didn't answer it) that there was a problem with my order and to call them back... but then a couple hours later they called back again (and I was still at work and still not answering my phone) saying that it was taken care of and the order was being processed. So they better not be lying! :x

The flowers were most definitely received and appreciated! The following message (which I also posted in the SNC thread) came from Lisa's mom:

We would like to thank The ToO for the lovely flowers at Lisa's (SNC) service. They really touched our hearts. We shared at the service some of the comments made about Lisa from her friends on The ToO as well as had a display of other comments for others to see how much she was a part of your lives.

We are working at putting parts of the service - including the mentioned comments - up online and will let you know when they are available. The day before she died we had our computers stolen and so this is taking awhile as we have to go somewhere to use a borrowed computer. Hopefully we will have it finished before this weekend.

Again, we thank all her friends on the ToO for sharing Lisa's life and allowing her to be a part of theirs. All the comments that came through have meant a lot to us.

That is really sweet. And that's so terrible that they got robbed. :(

Thanks for sharing this, Catspaw.

I'm so glad for the confirmation and that they were touched by our flowers. :)

Not that I'm overly worried, but did we ever donate money to the charity(s)?

No, no, no, there wasn't enough left after the surcharge fee I included. :noway:

But yeah I was waiting for some money to arrive by mail so I had a grand total... and that has all come in. So did we decide on a charity? >_> I remember one being mentioned somewhere at some point. I will do a quick background check on whatever to make sure its not like a fraud group but I assume the ones mentioned are mainstream enough that it won't be necessary.

I think Mercy Ships was something we were seriously considering. I forget what the other one was offhand.

You said this in another thread:

Catspaw wrote:Her mom also had the suggestion of the following two organizations for where we could designate the extra funds: mercyships.org and fameworld.org.


Both do seem like worthwhile efforts. I support whatever decision is made.

Thanks for saving me the work of finding my own former post, AE! They do both seem like solid organizations!

I just had an idea. If we had enough money, we could give half of the money to one organization, and the other half to the other. But I wouldnt want to give like $20.00 to each... That would seem weird to do.

We can do $50 to both or $100 to one place. \:D/

Oh. Well, do what ever you want then. $50.00 doesn't seem too bad for each, but it would probably be easier to just give to one organization. The only hard part with that is... Which one do we give to? Well, it's not totally up to me, so do whatever you feel like.

Forgot to update here... I had issues donating to the Mercy Ships thing because it is a silly Canadian organization and the conversion process was annoying, so I gave the entire amount to fameworld.org.
