This is a combination food and other stuff question. My mother died two weeks ago in C'ville Va where she had been living for the past four years to be near my sister. She lived the bulk of her life in Wilmington , Delaware. We are having a memorial service for her at a lovely Church in Wilmington on June 13th. She was 86yo so not a lot of contemporiares are still alive but enough for a lovely gathering. We are having a reception after in the Church hall and a member of the church will do the food. She suggested tea sandwiches, coffee, tea and juice. My guess is 30 people tops. There needs to be a bit more but my brain isn't working. Ideas?The service is at 12:30PM.
2nd question. We put the obit in the Wilmington paper right after her death saying a memorial service would be held at a later date. We kinda know who would come so weren't going to put an additional announcement in the paper but we are having second thoughts. I think we should announce the memorial service so someone we might not have thought of can come. Your thoughts?
