What a Trip!

My trip to honor my uncle was an absolute blast. I think he would approve. I stayed with my cousin and her family. My son joined us, her brother showed up with his hubby and adorable dog. It was the best kind of chaos. I drove my folks over which gave us 6+ hours of uninterrupted chat time.

The memorial service was beautiful. It was a fitting tribute to a man who lived in a small community and made such a positive impact on it. There was a military honor guard, the fire department came out, stories were told and songs were sung until there was not a dry eye in the church. It was beautiful.

The family relished each other’s company and eccentricities were embraced and declared a hereditary trait. Everyone pitched in when needed. It was fabulous from start to finish.

We were rained out of one day of fun, so I am invited back for a do-over. I can’t wait to return. I am full of joy. Next up is my daughter’s graduation and that is shaping up to be epic on many, many levels.
