That Was Difficult

The Funeral was yesterday, they only had a viewing/service at the funeral home.

When we went into see Brian the only way I can discribe it was surreal.

I really expected him to open his eyes and sit up and say just kidding.

I have been to many funerals, but of those who have lived a full life and it was not an unexpected death.

This one just, I don't know freaked me out.

I still can't believe it.

I'm so very sorry to hear of your friend's passing. He sounds like a wonderful guy; I know he will be greatly missed.

My first funeral, I kept thinking Alice would sit up at any moment, crack a joke and we'd go do something.

I agree, they are completely surreal experiences. Sorry that it had to happen.

We're not supposed to die at our age. One of the Dad's at school was just diagnosed with terminal lung cancer... he's our age, 3 kids. I think he has 6 mo at the most. The entire situation is horribly depressing and then... the thought of a funeral. It is boggling my mind.

I'm so sorry for y'all. I am. Y'all are in my thoughts.
