Our beloved Lisa's Birthday is Wednesday. What do you think about doing a balloon release at a certain time on that day? What would be the best time for everyone? This way each of us can send her a special message in or on the balloon(s).

and I definitely want to participate. Early morning, late afternoon, early evening would work best, I think, for those of us on the west coast with jobs that won't permit a balloon release break:) Seven a.m., six p.m., something like that.

If that's not possible, I'll work around it. A lone straggler balloon can't hurt; right?

Wednesday night at 6:30, our dear friend Sister Pauline has arranged for a Mass to be said for Moopy and then the two of us will go out for dinner.

I know that Wednesday will be hard for you Joe. Just know that the pink sisters are going to be thinking of you and Moopy.

The night I read of Lisa's passing, I had the thought that her spirit was lifted from her body as a gift to avoid any further suffering. It just popped into my head like a message. It is very difficult to think of death as a gift so I never mentioned it. How perfect is the image of balloons being lifted high into the sky. Count me in!

My tribute and thoughts to Moopy will be rising to her on 2 wings Wed. morn. I will pick up a young ringnecked pheasant hen who is ready for release (gotten from a friend who raises them) and release her on another friend's 6,000+ acre ranch that has a healthy pheasant population.

I will let my balloons fly in memory of Lisa also. Does anyone know her favorite color? I would like to get balloons in that color if I can. Joe?

Hugs, Jan

Moopy didn't have a strong favorite color: since she looked good in literally *any* color, she liked 'em all.

So I would encourage everyone to send up their own favorite color - be creative, be crazy, whatever. I can't lie: I know it's going to be a very tough day for me. All the same it's also a day on which I plan to CELEBRATE the birth and life of the beautiful, brilliant, amazing woman whose husband I was, and am, so incredibly honored to be.

Thanks Joe for your reply. I didn't know if Lisa had a favorite color or not. And, I am sure she looked beautiful in any color!

Joe said that any time is fine and it's the thought that matters. If you can't make it then, whenever you do it is perfectly fine. Since the Mass will be held for Moopy at 6:30, that seems to be the perfect time.
Chen, thank you for mentioning the candles! I will light a 5 & 1.
Susan, what a great idea releasing the Hen that's so awesome!
Marcia, love your pic as always!
I think I will do the Bday colors of Red, Yellow, Blue, & Green with a message included.
You are all so very Welcome!
♥ Always,
Cat

And, great idea Jan for thinking of picking colors to represent something special.

My balloons will be yellow, to celebrate the sunshine she brought to our lives.

I'll send up a purple balloon or two - the ACS color of survivors. Even though she's not physically here, her fight and survivorship should be celebrated.

I need to go get some balloons for Moopy. I will try and get some blue or turquoise blue ones to match the color of Joe's shirt and Moopy's blouse in the picture that Joe has posted for his avatar.

Last week I realized that this Wednesday would be Moopy's birthday, so i sent balloons to all of my family all over the country, asking that they release them at 6:30 PM CT on the 23rd. How ironioc that this time was set by Joe. My thought was that she was so much of an inspiration to me, and all of my family has followed the CSN board to keep up with my posts as well as those that responded to me. All of them knew her through her posts, as well as Joe's when she was unable to post. So, balloons from CT to CA are going up....even one in Hawaii, Japan and Afghanistan. Lisa will see all of the love she gave while she was here, and I hope that so many balloons will go up at the same time that someone from the media notices ans asks a question. Wouldn't that be wonderful. Lisa, here we come. (Something more ironic, I have a grandson and an uncle who share her birthday as well. I sent them extra balloons to celebrate their own birthday.) Hugs, Judy

... a large bouquet of yellow daffodils to my home. Daffodils because they're perfectly appropriate for Moopy's birthday month; and, yellow is the color of friendship & hope.

With an aching heart, I'm cherishing my memories.

Kind regards, Susan

I think I will get some red balloons because red is suppose to be the strongest color there is. And, I have never known anyone with more courage and stronger than Lisa was. So, my red balloons will fly to the heavens today for you Lisa.
