    Think of all of us there for you in spirit as a virtual shoulder to lean on and arms holding you.

    Actually, total exhaustion aside, it went well.

    The chaplain of Peters's school did the funeral mass-- he's the same priest who married Peter and me in 1989. It was a beautiful mass, and he gave some concrete references to mom. (He didn't know her well, but had met her numerous times.) Peter gave a eulogy-- it was simply wonderfu-- touching and light and full of happy memories. His brother gave one as well, touching on some of the same points.

    The burial always gets me. Mom was buried in the same double plot that dad was buried in 3 years ago, at the local Veteran's cemetary. I simply canNOT get through "Taps" dry-eyed, and was happy they wouldn't be playing it. But at another funeral nearby, they played it during the brief service, so I heard it anyway.

    Poor Julia has been a wreck the past few days. She can't seem to stop crying for more than a few hours. I'm glad this is behind her; maybe she'll be able to put it out of her mind a bit more now.

    Pete's brother and his family go home today. They'll be stopping by in a few hours to drop off his sister. Her flight it tomorrow and there's no reason for her to stay in mom's house, 45 minutes further from the airport, all alone, especially on New Year's Eve. Then tomorrow morning, Peter will take her to JFK, and this chapter will close.

    Peter and his siblings sat for a good 2 hours last night going over papers and finances. We'll have to make a good number of trips out east cleaning out mom's house, but there's no deadline there,

    All in all, not the Christmas we had anticipated, but it went as well as could be expected.

    Thanks once again for all the good wishes.

    I've been thinking of your family this week. More hugs and prayers, especially for Julia. I was about her age when my great-grandma (who I was very close to) passed away. Hopefully getting back into a routine soon will help as well.

    More hugs Alice. I was thinking the same thing as amak, maybe being back to the normal routine of school will help her cope with the loss.

    I'm glad there were a lot of fond smiles in between the tears. These things are never easy, but those happy memories help.

    Thanks guys.

    Today I'm "THAT MOM." I'm sending in a note explaining my daughter's failure to do a vacation assignment.

    Julia DID read the three chapters for English-- yesterday, pretty much her one day off this vacation.

    She did not complete the accompanying packet. Instead, she went to see the Muppet Movie. I figured she needed the chapters to keep up with the class discussion. But, given the circumstances, the packet could wait.

    I would have done the same thing. You did good though. You were respectful enough to recognize that reading would be the most important part of the assignment to keep up.
