I have much to say about my mom's funeral. But not tonight. Not right now.

I need to post these pictures right now, because they're sitting on my computer, preventing my silly mind from being able to blog about anything else...but i'll have to come back and visit this post some other night--to write about all the beautiful things that we experienced that day, the angels that carried us, and the outpouring of love my family felt.

I'm a bit too drained right now to say anything more. For some reason, it's been a really hard few days. I guess that's how this will go for a while.

Yes, that's exactly how it will go for awhile and it's okay.
I know you don't want to hear that as time goes on it does hurt a little less, but it does. You never forget, but the sting isn't as strong.
I wasn't brave enough to put the photos up and I'm not sure I can even look at them still.
Hang in there.

Emily, I can't say that I know what your going through but I do pray for comfort for you. You have written so well your feelings of this time in your life and someday you will be glad that you did. Here's to hoping that each day gets a little better.

Oh EMily, I'm so sorry. You have captured everything so beautifully. I wish I could was next door and could take your kids or bring you dinner or something and hug you. Love, Lisa

Emily, I just wanted to write and let you know that I am sorry for your loss. I know it must be comforting to know that your separation isn't permanent and you will be able to see your mom again someday, but I'm sure it doesn't make it easy to know that you can't spend that time with her right now as well. You seem to handling everything so well. Your mom seems like an amazing person and I'm sure her influence will continue to bless her family and posterity.
