Memorial Service Tomorrow

by Barb

Tomorrow would have been my father's 82 birthday. Normally that day would be spent at my house, enjoying a BBQ, some ball playing in the backyard with my son, an evening game of Monopoly, and cake made by my daughter. This year, we will be in church, having a late afternoon memorial service for him. September 14th marked the 9 month anniversary of his death to SCA. He made it very clear that when he died, he didn't want any type of service, and we honored his wishes, but my mother is struggling with that. She needs some closure. We have arranged for a nice, simple service at my church. It will just be my family and my mother. Very small. Very respectful. I have been doing "better" this week, and have actually been able to think about my father without bursting into tears, but I think tomorrow will be awful. This means so much to my mother.....she is having such an awful time with this, and all I can do is be there for her. They had such a wonderful, happy life and it all ended so abruptly. Thanks for reading my ramblings....I just needed to post. It really does help. Prayers to all of you on this site, Barb.
