Thank you guys so much for your wonderful support during this sad time. My family and I are holding together and really just staying busy with funeral arrangements. At first, it seemed like we were planning for something unreal but as the day gets closer to Friday (viewing) and Saturday (funeral), the less I can seem to handle without sobbing.
I don’t mean to make this a downer but I just wanted to be exactly who I am and how I am at this moment – vulnerable and tired – and let you know that I think it’s okay to be that way. Sometimes being strong all the time is not the best thing.
Luckily, my mom’s whole family flew in from everywhere and she has a huge network of support at her house, which gives me a chance to wrap up other arrangements and write the eulogy that I have been putting off since I realized I had to do it.
I just wanted to thank you all for being so supportive and the kind words. It really does help and I read it for comfort.
