Well , here it is! In 2004, my little mama died at 90! She loved horses and as a little girl had several of her own. One pony , Silver, was trained to do tricks! When she died and I was making funeral arrangements, I asked the priest if we could have a horse out side the church(she always said she would get on a horse one more time!) He asked the congregation to get in touch with me if they could bring a horse the day of the funeral. I got a call from a lady who said she had a friend who had a pony and would be willing to bring her to the services. I said, "that's perfect, my mom used to have a trick pony she adored"! The lady went on to say that the pony was quite old and her name was Silver! My heart stopped.....and I said to her, " the name of my mom's pony was.....Silver"! True story!!! So, that is why my husband and I and Silver are all smiling outside the church the day of my mother's funeral!
