Thank you one and all for your comments and good thoughts. It has been a difficult weekend for me. I managed to conduct business on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday I put a sign on the door and spent the day going through old photos. I didn't find that many of my son and I am still searching through photo boxes.
Today I have been on the phone all day. Details, so many details to handle. Just when you think everything is settled, someone else tosses a monkey wrench (so to speak) on all the plans. I am content to let everyone else handle it. The memorial service is not for the person gone, but those left.
I finally gave up and put my sneakers on and went out to mow. After a week of raining non-stop, it was satisfying to do something that showed immediate results. I remembered as I mowed that my son, Bobby, hated mowing. There was not a blade he could not destroy 5 minutes into the job. I doubt he ever actually mowed a whole yard. After replacing several blades we decided it would be less expensive and frustrating to just do the job ourselves. Good thing I like to mow.
