Funeralizing

We have all been "funeralizing" as my mother calls it for days now. I am so tired. I should be in bed. I am going there as soon as I write this. Tomorrow is the funeral. We ended up waiting until tomorrow for two reasons: 1. all the family couldn't get here until today. 2. One of my Mema's best friends and neighbors died on the same day, and they had her funeral today. Isn't that so wierd?

We are all doing good. It's just wierd to think that she is not here. I ended up staying the entire weekend at my parent's house. I didn't get to go to the Zoe Conference on Saturday, because of the events, but I really think I ended up getting so much out of Friday night, so it's okay. I had a nice time at my parents house. It was just nice to be around my parents for a couple of days without kids. It was quiet. Life was simple, and I really just felt comforted with everything that is going on in life right now.

I am supposed to speak at the funeral tomorrow. I have it all written out in case I can't speak and end up having to read. Most of you know how emotional I can be, so I am going to do my best to be as stoic as possible. We'll see how that goes!!! I will certainly do my best to make a good attempt.

I still have a personal story to tell, which is what I'm telling at the funeral tomorrow, but I'm just too tired to write it right now. So I'll get to it sometime. I hope you are all having a good week.

I know this time is hard right now. You will make your Mema smile tomorrow when you are speaking. I am glad all of your family got to come in for the funeral. Thinking of your family.

I loved having lunch with you and your sisters. You all crack me up. We should do it again! :)

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Larissa. I know that in a sense, this is a good thing for your Mema, though. She is home! Praise the Lord! Though I know it's still hard on those who loved her.

I think it is great that you are speaking at the funeral. I will be praying for you tomorrow.

I will be in prayer for you and your family tomorrow as you celebrate her life and comfort each other. I look forward to hearing your story.

I was wondering why I did not see you again after Friday night, and now I know! I am glad that you were able to be around your family and have some peace for a day-I know that was a blessing. I wish you could've been there for the first session when Jeff spoke on Saturday-I thought about you and was wondering if you were there because it was a great message. I am glad you were able to be around your family, though-sometimes that is all you need.

Still praying for you! It was good to see you. Blessings~

Thinking of you and praying for you. I heard a song on the radio today that reminded me of you and how incredible you are.."Although my heart is torn, I will praise you in this storm... hallelujah Your grace falls down on me.....

Thinking of you. I did get a good chuckle when I read your comment about moving in hell. I think suffering from perpetual allergies will also be thrown in there.
