Funerals

Andrew's parents are very private people, but I feel that the events of the past few days need to be documented?
His mom passed away on Wednesday. Just 2 short weeks after a diagnosis. We're happy that it went so swiftly, that she didn't have to suffer for a long period of time, and that he was able to say goodbye.
As the mother of the man I married, I want to honor her memory by mentioning it.
We're getting pretty good at this funeral thing. Sigh.

oh so sorry to hear this. I think I met Andrew's parents once, perhaps at a baptism for one of your kids. I do remember their lovely accents, though, and that makes me smile. Our prayers are with your family.
