So Long, Farewell….

NewYears200451

Yesterday we said goodbye to my Mom. The Sun was shining and the temperatures seemed to reach the 50’s a far cry from what we have had for weather the last few weeks. It has been a very long and very hard few days around here but the family seems to be doing fairly well.

Monday Night was the Calling hours at the funeral home and to say we were overwhelmed would be an understatement. The number of flower arrangements (close to 30) and the sheer number of People whose lives my Mom touched either directly or through my Family was amazing. I estimated roughly 500 people showed up to pay their respects. The fact that all of these people waited in a line that stretched out the door for nearly 2 straight hours was unbelievable. We are so grateful to know how much we are loved.

Things will slowly return to their regular pace as I get back to a more normal life.
