To Arkansas, for a Funeral

Well, my mother passed away on Sunday, a little after noon. My brother said she went peacefully at the last. I will be leaving for Arkansas early Tuesday. The funeral will be on Wednesday. Not sure when I'll be back, or when I'll be likely to post again. It will probably be a while.

I am so sorry to hear this. It will get better. I hope her passing was peaceful and am glad you had a recent visit. I know you were a good son to her--that will bring you comfort in the months ahead. I went to grief counseling for three months or so last year and it did help. It's good to have someone to say things to other than your friends.

Charles

Sorry to hear about your loss. You should take whatever time you need to come back to this little world tucked within the greater one you are dealing with right now.

In a strange coincidence I went home Michigan from Arkansas on Tuesday morning. My mom had a major procedure done a week ago, and she still needs some help around the house. It makes me feel better being near because I've been really worried. But, she'll be OK, I think, and everyone else thinks as well.

Best wishes to you and Lana.
