Elaine Caldbeck's sister Nancy Caldbeck Bohemann was laid to rest on July 11...

The whole service was incredibly moving - from the beautiful simplicity of St. Andrews church, the organist playing favorite songs of Nancy's - I heard Hey Jude at the prelude and smiled -the lovely burial service of the Episcopal church, your cousin's moving epistle, kind words, simple homily, lovely music, welcoming people and then the lovely visual and moving committal in the Memorial Garden. May your sister rest in peace and may your family heal as you joyfully remember the wonderful life and gifts of Nancy. (Deb Leksell)
