Good morning everyone! We arrived home last night. It's always good to sleep in your own bed.
Mom's funeral was yesterday morning. It was a really nice service. I think both my sister and I were surprised when a couple of our cousins came. We haven't seen them in soooooo many years. Then, we went to the gravesite and stood in the pouring rain. There was a tent and it helped, but I think everyone got wet.
After we got back to my sister's house, she and I packed up a box of stuff to send to me. Lots of clothes that my sister had bought for Mom and she never got to wear. They're all brand new and still in the packages. Then, we took some blankets, bedspreads and throws to the animal shelter. They were really happy to get them.
I'm really glad it's all over and Mom is at rest beside Dad.
Mom has arrived on the other side with some great company! Even though we'll miss their talents, I'm sure those in heaven will enjoy them. RIP Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall and Ed Nelson.
Mom had two engagement rings. We don't know why. Most likely there is a story behind them - we just never heard it. Anyway, my sister has one and I have the other.
We're just glad to be home now. My friend, Beverly, was taking care of Junior & Breeze. They were sure glad to see us when we walked in the door!
I'm going to sit here with my coffee and just take it easy today.
Flying does NOT make the MS any better. In fact, I've been one big ache for the last several days.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
