Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving.

Mine was fine. Greg and Jerry went off to Ft. Collins to visit Greg's dad, and I went to my dad's, and we missed him, true, but there were 14 adults and two teenagers and a half-dozen kids and two babies in the house, and really, it wasn't too bad. One of my step-mom's siblings ordered us a dinner from the grocery store, so nobody had to cook.

After dinner, I took my grandmother home and sat with her for a while. She worries about her memory since she had a mini-stroke a while back, but she still remembers more history and events than I can, even if she does sometime forget words and lose her train of thought.

The waves of sorrow have mostly ebbed. Tomorrow is the funeral, and I expect I'll cry again then, but I'm starting to feel normalish again. Life, as has been remarked upon a number of occasions, continues on...

Thanks, I appreciate the thoughts. I'm doing pretty well now, but I'm sure there will be times when the sorrow comes back. We did a lot of story sharing during the week. I'm hoping to exchange collections of pictures and stuff at Christmas...
