We had the visitation and the funeral for my mother-in-law last night. The line at the funeral home went down the hall and out the door for 2 solid hours. My husband has a huge family, his mom was a teacher, all of my husband's siblings have tons of friends, the churches (ours, our in-laws, and others in town) came out in great numbers, many of my family members came, etc...... The Methodist Church Choir sang a rendition of Amazing Grace and My Chains are Gone, and In the Garden. How inspiring! My mother-in-law's first cousin is a pastor of a Baptist Church. He and the Methodist pastor did the service together. It was beautifully done. It was not a tear jerker type funeral, thank God for this!
Today we have the grave side service. To me, this is always the hardest part.
All of our girls and their spouses and children are here at our house. That part is so much fun. The little girls are playing dress up in the room with me right now. They are so cute and sweet. Our Little Man is upstairs getting dressed, I think.
Thank you for all of your prayers and thoughts for our family. This blogger world is so wonderful!
