This week was a death kind of week, three people we knew died. One was just an acquaintance, one was a old customer ( I left condolences on the Funeral Home Website.)
We attended the wake for a neighbor who died of cancer. Bill was a local businessman for years and years, he did many selfless things for this community. He graduated from High School with Far Guy. One day last winter we had a really good visit with him…talking about old school photos….and how “Wouldn’t it be nice if the school kids from the Elementary School in Osage would get together and plan a reunion.” We won’t attend the funeral, the church will be full to overflowing. ( Too many people and too many germs and too many women with perfume.)
Do you think that things come in threes? Usually after the second death we wonder who is next?
Up here in Minnesota a lunch is always served after the funeral…so we could have gone out for lunch three times this week.
I am almost out of sympathy cards. I make my own cards…good thing I signed up for a retreat in September…I can get lots of card making done.
