Done

My mother's funeral is Saturday, at noon. Her ashes will be buried with my father's ashes. Then it will be done.

This evening, I wrote my column for her, and I submitted it.

Now I sit in my quiet dark house. I should be doing homework, but instead, I am listening to the distant thunder and thinking on things even more distant than that. The rain is coming, and it seems only right that it should.

Hard stuff, Deb. I'm very sorry.

Sometimes we need a moment (or two or three) to regroup before we move on.

(((hugs)))

I have been away from the computer (obviously) and am catching up this morning. Another step in the process Deb. Wish I was there to hug you through it.

Sending you hugs from my temporary home in Lancaster. (Did you see me wave on my way?) I hope the funeral goes smoothly for all concerned.
