The memorial service for my dad went well.... relatives came from Lower Michigan, Upper Michigan, and all over Wisconsin to the tiny village of Riverview at Crooked Lake. Everything went well, and nephew Matt made a great speech before the luncheon. We managed to get through the day and everything went as planned. It was a good time for family to bond, but sad to have to be there for a memorial. All dad wanted was a "Crooked Lake Party" and that is what he got. No weeping, no serious stuff... just laughter, stories and have a beer on him!
Tomorrow we are headed out to Ohio to help with step-dad Lowell next. Hospice has been called in and set up some equipment. He is still walking and eating and talking on the phone. He said to me: "set that Steve in the driver's seat, plug in that XYZ thingy (my GPS) and point him to Ohio!~"
So now it's on to help with Mom and hoping to lend support and love and caring......
