mama's brother was killed in a terrible accident on july 15th. we buried him yesterday.
thoughts on my mind:
  • silence speaks volumes
  • there are no words to comfort a 15 yr old who feels responsible for his grandfather's death
  • funerals are for the living, not the dead
  • God alone suffices
  • a close-knit family is king
  • the call to duty is helpful for getting through nightmarish days
  • thankful for the love of good people
  • love hearing the memorial bell ring three times before he was carried into the family cementary
  • love hearing the strains of taps
  • grateful for the many memories at the farm.
