  • Question of the Day 11/26/22

    Good Saturday, everyone!

    When was the last time you attended a memorial service? We are doing that today. Joel’s grandmother and my former mother-in-law passed away earlier this week at age 93, and today is her service. It will be simple, graveside only. Joel is serving as a pallbearer, which warms my heart. We’re not saddened, but hopeful in her passing. Plus, she lived a life filled with love and family. She and “granddaddy “ were married 65 years prior to his passing a few years ago.

      April 2013 when my father passed away.
      Over 100 pounds gone. Diabetes is in remission, no more insulin. So grateful to have done weight loss surgery ( duodenal switch).

          This past September, my last aunt on my dad's side (married to dad's brother) died, on the same day my youngest grandson was born. I went to her service the next weekend (drove approx. 10 hours each way).

            About 3 months ago when a friend of ours passed away after a brief but aggressive battle with ALS (about 6 months from diagnosis to her passing).

              Almost a year ago now, when Mark's mum died - it was early December. Before that, we had his dad's memorial service in October 2021 and his aunt's in November 2021. It was a very tough few months.

                I work at an Assisted Living, Memory Care facility so memorial services I attend much too frequently. The last one was last week for all the residents who passed in 2022.

                    Probably +20 years ago when my step-grandmother’s husband died. The circumstances were awful and I just happened to be in town when the funeral was taking place. A lot of people were mad at me because I didn’t take DDs 3/4 who were still preschool. I pretty much decided at that point that I don’t feel the need to attend services anymore. No one in the immediate family has plans for one, I think most of us feel the same way.

                      About a year ago...someone from our church.
                      That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.
