Thank You

Hi Guys,

Thank you all for your words of encouragement and inquiring about my Mother. I think she is doing fairly well, of course she is upset, her and Unc were very close. So many people have come to the funeral home and you try to talk to everybody and that alone is exhausting. Tomorrow is the funeral. Then a dinner at the Church. I have to say as I looked around the funeral home and seen my family members I am proud of them. Uncle Keith never went to anyones funeral...(lol)..but we were all there for him. Thats just the way he was and we understood that. OK...gonna do a meme.

Shelli said...

Wow, I am younger than you and I don't think I could remember the answers to those questions.

Mimi said...

I am sorry to read about your uncle passing. It is a shame to loose such a colorful character. But he is in a better place and is not suffering from his illness. i am glad the family is still visiting even though he did not.

What is intramural volleyball?

Gingers Mom said...

Wow. YOu were engaged in high school? Was it to your ex husband? Or a different guy. So young!! Wanna hear more. I hated high school. The only good thing was I met my hubby.
I am sorry about your uncle.

Having gone through the funerals of five uncles and six aunts. I know how hard the process itself is. I will pray for you and your mother. I think I will also take
the questions for Saturday's blog. Thanks for sharing from your younger days.

I'm glad to hear your Mom is doing better. Hugs to both of you!

Michelle said...

I think it's wonderful that your family came out for his viewing and hopefully the funeral as well...even though he never went to anyone's funeral! They just know that's the type of person he was.
