It's Over

November 7th, 2017 at 05:01 pm

C passed away yesterday morning. M and I were with her, holding her hand and stroking her hair. The end, when it came, was very fast.

There will be a memorial gathering and celebration sometime after Thanksgiving in her hometown. The date has not been selected yet. C was cremated yesterday, and there will not be a formal funeral. Her ashes will be spread according to her wishes.

All the family who is local went out for a late lunch yesterday at Buffalo Wild Wings, and it was a good time of sharing memories and just generally letting down. My contribution to the total cost was $16.

Today I'm just going to work toward getting back to normal. There is a lot of housework that has been neglected.

Thank you to everyone here on this site for your caring and support. You are the best!

    I am so sorry for your loss. You must have some peace knowing that C is no longer in pain. Prayers for your DIL, you and the rest of the family.

    I am from the south and we believe in our loved ones come to visit in some fashion. Usually it is a cardinal or a found penny. I hope C comes often and gives comfort to your DIL.
