I knew today would be a roller coaster of a day….
The up’s: seeing old friends at church, so much fun. We had such a great ward.
Watching Conner pass the sacrament with kids he grew up with
Seeing old friends at the celebration (Roddy didn’t have a funeral, he had a celebration of life).
Funeral potatoes were a huge hit at the funeral! Those Mormons, we know they’re better then alcohol!
The down’s: So many amazing influencers in my kids lives are here in CA, I miss that the people who have seen them grow-up aren’t in their lives anymore.
So sad to have the party that Roddy would have adored, without him…
Sad that Drew couldn’t be at the party…
Drew wrote a lovely tribute to Roddy which I somehow felt compelled to read and try not to cry through.
P wouldn’t go to nursery, that girl!
The truth is that I really wish I would have written down the many feelings I have had on this trip. It has been good & hard, hope to expound more this week when I am not blogging via my thumbs.
The other truth is that I know Roddy is cancer free now and he and Noona will be together again. At some point separation, be it death or just miles won’t be an obstacle for us. I look foreward to that. That, and my own bed…. 🙂
