This week has been an emotional one. We traveled to Kentucky for my brother's funeral and met with family and friends to say a final goodbye. We cried, laughed, shared stories and food as is usually the case at times like this. The funeral service was very moving and a wonderful tribute to a great guy. His daughter's eulogy brought everyone to tears and even some laughter as she shared her love for her Dad. The Marine Military honors were so touching. I can't even put into words how special it was. So now we move on as a family as everyone goes back to their home and their lives with our memories and special moments spent this week. Jack and I are slowly getting our yard back into order and I'm finally able to be of a help. I still can't lift heavy objects and I do get tired more often than I'm used to. But it's getting better day by day. I can drive and even mow the yard! So I'll end this with some pics and a wish that everyone gives their family members a hug or an "I love you" while you can. It's a shame we need reminding to do that and I hope it's something you all do naturally.
Our front walk is starting to bloom out and Jack and I planted a new tree to replace the one that died.
