Through the Motions

Wednesday and Thursday were sad days for us. 

Mom's three hour wake had a continual line of friends, family and loved ones that wrapped around the large room. The tributes dedicated to her during Mass  had everyone who knew her feeling blessed that she was in their life.

We will miss her so much and no matter how hard anyone tries, her shoes will not be filled.

Damn...grieving is exhausting, draining, emotionally and physically demanding!


Going through the motions, we all need life to take us by the hand to give us comfort.







One more thing.

I can't...won't...put up a picture of Mom.  She hated her picture on any public venue.  That, my friends is called RESPECT.

  1. Bless you for honoring her 'no picture' edict! I am the same about pictures.

    I am sorry for your loss; I still miss my Mom every single day.

  2. JP,

    First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. My sympathies are with you. Just so sorry....

    Secondly, I haven't visited you in a long time because on my side bar it looks like you haven't updated your blog in three months! I have no idea why it hasn't been updating. I usually go through my sidebar and click on blogs, and yours hasn't updated. Anyway, I guess I won't go by that anymore.

    I hope you find some comfort in the happy memories in the next few days.
