Trying to return to normal the last few days after my sister's memorial service. It went as well as it could, with a lot of her coworkers, childhood friends, and family there.
I'll share a small portion of what I said at the prayer service.
I stand here wishing that I didn’t have to stand here – saying goodbye to L.
L loved life and laughing, and I think she would not have wanted our sadness and tears. So I’m going to just say a few good things I remember.
M said the other day that if you were at a party, and didn’t meet L, something was wrong.She would be sitting and laughing and talking loud, meeting everyone.Then she might find a flower arrangement and rip out a flower to put in her mouth and dance around the room...
People I would never expect sent cards, ecards, sent emails, or commented here-- even received a few sets of flowers myself. That really meant something to me. I went back to work and faced 700 emails and a brand new circulation system, but its OK.
Have a good long weekend (states)!
[anyone going to Wizard Philly? It seems so soon after NY Comicon, and of course I haven't focused much on it. Got my ticket the other day ]
