I’m sorry there was no blog post here earlier today.
The funeral went well. It was interesting to see the people my mother touched at various stages of her life hearing each other’s stories and meeting for the first time. What a legacy. Each one is a story unto themselves, but she was a common element in each journey. I hope I can measure up; spiritually speaking these are huge shoes to fill.
A funeral service is always stressful and emotional. Especially when you are officiating your own mother’s, doing the music and overseeing the details. When it was over, we were hoping to relax, but instead we drove home in some of the worst weather I can remember. It feels really good to be home today.
We’ll try to get back up to speed here in a few days, but nobody is paying me to do this, so it might be short posts like this one.
