More Good Days Than Bad!

Well the last week has been one of the hardest of my life. I never thought I would be burrying one of my parents at the age of 28. While we new my mothers death was coming it still was hard for those that she left behind. She had a beautiful service with lots of gorgeous Hawaiian flowers that she would have loved. Although some people thought that my mom would not have enough friends and family to justify a viewing, the line went out the door and down the hall the entire evening. The outpoor of support warmed our hearts. Thank you to everyone who has expressed their concern. All 3 of us kids have been overwhelmed by the love so many have shown. My mom lived a several lifetimes of adventures, trials, joys and sadnesses in her short 64 years. I am surprised at what little things seem to remind me of her and flood me with emotion. While our realtionship has been strained much of my adult life it doesn't hurt any less to not have her here. I love you mom!

Jori, Jori, Jori - I just tried to call you and the line was busy! I didn't hear the news until just now. I am so sorry and wished I could have been there. Even though you had some difficult years with your mom - she passed on some of her BEST traits which are evident in the GREAT mother and wife that you are! Call me!
