maddie

The "life celebration" last night was packed to the rafters; almost all of my relatives made it, plus a ton of old friends, coworkers, inlaws, and other people I didn't know. I did alright, a little crumbly around the edges but not too bad... right up to time to leave. John and I were leaving 45 minutes early to go pick up the food for the reception after and get it set up, so Carol and Ralph wouldn't have to, and I stopped as we were going out to get another photo of the memory board everyone had been writing on all evening (I had gotten a pic of it before it was written on earlier). I made the mistake of skimming what was written on the board... I saw what Uncle Jim had written (and no, I don't actually recall wha it was), and went to point it out to John, saying "ohhhhhh... that's so sweet". Yeah, I got as far as the 'so', and lost it. He knew it was coming, he'd been waiting for it all evening, so he just wrapped me in his arms and let me be a blithering mess until I was done.

There will be photos of the collages and such posted when I'm home.

Poor You ::Hugs::
There are never good words to say in moments like these so I never try. Just know that I'm thinking of/praying for you.
