I think the biggest accomplishment in my life thus far was the birth of my son and that I was blessed to be holding the hands of my mother and father as they passed.
My brother, Jim and I drove over to All Saints Cemetary. I said a few words to Grandma and Grandpa who are buried there and then paid my respects to Mom and Dad. Even though Dad hasn't arrived, I'm sure he was there in spirit. There will be no service. There will be a small funeral when they place his urn beside Mom's.
Jim and I went down to the Beach House Restaurant on the water for a Bloody Mary. A man at the bar said, "You two are the best looking couple I've seen all day. I'm assuming you are a couple?" We let him know we were brother and sister. He laughed while saying that's why we looked so much alike. :0) From there we took a drive around the Jensen Beach causeway and fondly remembered all of the places we have grown to love.
One last trip to the house and now I'm at the Palm Beach airport, California bound. I look forward to seeing Wayne and the pups. I'm sure I will have more posts in the near future to help me reflect.
For now, I am moving on to the next chapter in my life....as it should be.
