I think most of yall know that my Grpa passed away on Valentine's Day during the late hours of the evening. He lived with my parent's in Carlsbad, so we left Sunday morning and headed there. We spent a day and a half getting things ready for the funeral. We then left for Albuquerque on Tuesday because Grpa wanted to be buried with my Grma, uncle, & Grma Cady (great-grandmother). The funeral was Wednesday. My mom, sister, & I sang 2 songs which was difficult, but something we wanted to do. The funeral went well - we didn't expect many people because we assumed he had outlived everyone he knew (he would have been 91 years old next month), but we were pleased to see several people there at the service. We debated whether to try to drive part of the way home on Wednesday, but we were all so exhausted, we stayed at the hotel with my parents another night. We got up this morning and drove the 9+ hours home, arriving home just before 8pm. We drove 1000+ miles this week & I can definitely feel it. Tomorrow we get back to life as normal. I have 2 exams to make up, 2 papers that were due today, and numerous other assignments to get done. Russ heads back to work in the morning as well. Damaris will go back to school tomorrow too. Pray for us as we get back on track and on schedule with everything. I did get to see the new episode of LOST last night & I promise to get my thoughts post up in the next day or so. I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who has emailed me, called me, texted me, left me a message on Facebook, etc., during this past week. Your prayers and support got us through these difficult days.
