Funeral trip

A winding road, a motorcycle and a big patch of gravel spelled the end of my young sister-in-law last night near her home in southern Indiana. So we fly out in the morning for the gathering of the clan and the funeral on Monday. So no more posts until we return on Tuesday. It will be Mr. Boy’s first funeral, and we expect many questions once he drops his rising second-grader, know-it-all pose. He was too young for his maternal grandfather’s funeral in ’03, which was too bad because he missed the military honors. I expect this one to be much more somber. Sudden, unexpected death always drills deep into our sense of mortality. We are already taking more time for hugs and saying "be careful" when we part on even short errands.

    Thanks, y’all, I appreciate it. We got in late last night, pretty well exhausted.
