It has been a challenging couple of days, with several more to come. But as I told with my Mother today as we talked, less than 24 hours after the passing of her husband and best friend.... "It is astounding how empty and hurt you felt yesterday, but today, the sun rose, the grass is green, the sky is blue, and it is another day that demands to be lived. Life goes on."
My mother may not be a lot of things, but she is one tough lady.
Tomorrow, we start a journey of sorrow, memory, and most of all, per his request, a toast to life. We are heading to Missouri to inter his remains, in a part of the Ozarks that holds many memories of their life together.
Rest in peace James.
