I am exhausted by the events of the last few days and thought that I would try to relax by checking out my blog. I am overwhelmed with all the well wishes of my friends. It truly is touching. You have become such an important part of my life. The visitation was yesterday and the funeral was today. The funeral was lovely. A priest, a friend of ours who is a minister, and our son-in-law who is a minister officiated. Our grandchildren took part part in the service. We were comforted by the many people that attended. I have so many things to take care of from now until Christmas. Tomorrow I have to start taking care of some business and then I need to finish Christmas shopping. We are having Christmas eve at our house with the entire family as we do each year. It will be so difficult as "Pap" was and will always be the "head" of our large family. I will be back in a week or two. Thank you so much, Dear Friends. Each of you is special.
