No More Funerals

I have recently returned from NV again where little Rosie and I attended my Grandpa Lewis' funeral.

We brought the flu home with us. Little girl and I are both looking and feeling amazingly pathetic.

But we are here. 

I have lost both of my grandpas in 3 months time. I grew up down the street from Grandpa Lewis and will miss not having him there, but I am grateful his spirit is out of that old (98!!) body. I'm sure he is dancing with my grandma.

I'm grateful to have grandparents who have lived well into their 80's and 90's. I hope my girls can have the relationships with mine and Easy's parents that I had with my grandparents.

And I hope that they all live a really really really long time. 

No more funerals for 2013!!

A very wise caregiver imparted the following advise to me and I'm so glad I took it. She said the reason so many people (including kids) have a problem with funerals is because people wait until its someone very close to them and then the grief cycle is amplified. If more people would take care to go to some almost-strangers' funerals to get used to things, it would be easier when its someone you love very much.
