After my visit with Julie yesterday, I was able to face the day’s tasks with less anxiety and emotion, therefore, we got a ton of things accomplished! We had a meeting with the Knights of Columbus (my dad was a 4th degree Knight), a trip to the church to tell them we wanted to schedule his service there, a meeting with the probate lawyer, which added even more to our to-do list for tomorrow, and even went and picked up all of Dad’s belongings at the residential hime where he passed away. I feel stronger, but was a little emotional doing that last task. The last thing I did tonight was get an urn ordered online, and I think we will all be happy with it. I’m going to ask the funeral home tomorrow if they can save out some of his ashes for a beautiful
cross I want to buy later. It is a rustic cross with a small orb at the bottom that the ashes will be incorporated into. Part of him will always be with me 😌
I’m sure tired, and that may be due to constant running around and bottling up emotions, and yet I feel a sense of accomplishment at all we got done. My brother is back to work, but had nothing going on today, so having him run us all over town while he still could was awesome. I have much to do again tomorrow, but its all part of the process and it has to get done. Most of it is phone calls, but I also have to go get his picture blown up and framed for the service. I’m still not sure when the obit gets written, or if I’m doing it, but that will be soon, I’m sure, because we are going to try and get the service scheduled for Dec 10th or 11th.
One day at a time.
