Gordi, did Mom have any kind of services? Any gathering of family and friends? We haven't heard much, so I thought I'd ask. Do you have anything besides pics that you got to take home with you? I love my treasures from my Mom and Dad!
... (Basically where everyone has a drink or twelve to give the dear departed a good send-off! and YES we're expecting a LOT of family & friends to be there.)
The term “the purvey” is often associated with that part of the proceedings consequent upon a funeral service or wedding ceremony where the mourners or guests “partake of sustenance or refreshment”. Thereby although not of Scots language derivation, purvey is surely affectionately associated with the Scots custom of offering guid hospitality.
Right, that's me away.... see you in six hours!
