Hello to everyone.  Tomorrow is my Mother’s memorial service and I have much to do, so I will keep this short. 

Again, I want everyone of you to know that I take great comfort in all of the comments that you are leaving.  They lift my spirit and help me as I walk this journey.  It’s such a strange feeling, even at my age, to know that both of your parents are gone.

Kathy…..I don’t have your e-mail but hopefully you will read this and know that I am praying for your husband and that his spinal surgery goes well.

To anyone out there who may have lost someone or knows of someone who has, there is a wonderful book on grieving called Don't Take My Grief Away From Me by Doug Manning.  I went to one of his seminars after my father passed away and he is an amazing man who really understands the grieving process and how different people grieve in different ways.

So…….tomorrow I WANT to read a poem that my mother had marked in a book that Heather found on my mothers shelves Wednesday. 

Wish me luck!  I don’t know if I’ll be able to maintain or not!  We are doing very very well here and I will be back to posting on Tuesday!  Boy do I have some interesting pics. to show all of you.
