The Final Good Bye

Today was the memorial service for Gary. It was a sad, emotional and funny service. Sad because it kinda drove the point home, that Gary won't be coming back to me here on earth. Emotional because LOTS of people were saying the last good bye. Funny because some people shared some of the pranks Gary pulled during his time as well as some wonderful stories. I believe we had more than 50 people there.

Pastor Troy did a wonderful job. I would like to thank him for that as well as a thank you goes out to the ladies who served a lunch for family and close friends after.

The service brought me some kind of closure. Sweetheart, I miss you so very much. You KNEW that your days were numbered, that's why you had those talks with Tony. I am sure, I haven't heard about all of them, but it slipped that you asked Tony to look after me when you are gone. He is sticking to his word. Without Tony or Janean I wouldn't have been able to cope the way I did. Thank you both.

Oh Chris
I'm so sorry to read this. I just sent you an email, then followed your link and read you too haven experienced a horrific lose. Had I been on the mail list I would have known and could have offered my condolences.

I am truly so very sorry. Perhaps Gary and Mom will get acquainted up there and look down on us both.
