Oh. My. Gosh. A cousin (on Daddy's side) has shared a bunch of pictures I've never seen before! He is at the far left ... and look, he's laughing! So, is his brother, George, at the right. And Daddy's hair. I'm in love.

I've honed my mother's eulogy down to nine minutes (to some, this is still long - but she had a long, full life so there's lots to say about her), I've got the picture ready that will sit by her urn, I've made the Spotify playlist of all her favorite songs spanning six decades for the memorial gathering, and I've got the backup CD of Albinoni's Adagio for Strings that will be the prelude before her Mass begins...and we're singing all her favorite songs—including "Pie Jesu" (me and my sis).

I'm packed up, the snow promises NOT to inhibit air traffic...and family are gathering in OH-KY as I type. It will be good to see them and meet the newest babies.

Today we said goodbye to our beautiful momma - a woman with a strength and resilience of spirit like no other...who raised nine children and lived to see fourteen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. She lived with industrious purpose, loved music and dancing, and was especially proud of her family. Even through the most trying times in life, she always managed to maintain an attitude of thankfulness, faith, and grace. She lived a very long and healthy life...the last of her generation on both sides of the family. I will miss her presence on this earth more than ever, but I rejoice that her spirit flies free now—-and will count on her watching over me from the great beyond. Love you, Mom.
