Flowers - Father's Funeral

I can only think of a couple of "nice" things that happen at funerals. My father's funeral was this past Saturday April 22. He would have turned 88 on the 28 th. of this month. As difficult as it is to say goodbye to loved ones, it is nice to see friends and family that you haven't visited with in too long of a time. It reaffirms friendships and family relationships.

I'm not sure where the custom of sending flowers came from, but it is always nice to see the beautiful flowers. Maybe they serve as a reminder that for the rest of us, life goes on along with all it entails. I took a picture of the arrangement my wife had made to serve as a reminder of that day.

Brain Food

It has felt like my brain hasn't been working right for months. I wonder if it's old age? Yikes! Anyway, they say creating something helps your brain.

Father Passed

My father passed away earlier this morning. He would have turned 88 in just a couple of weeks. He suffered from dementia, and had a heart attack last week. I'm so glad he can be at peace now. Living in a nursing home was barely a life at all.
