What Do I Do Today?
I’ve been pondering what to do. Now that the funeral plans are in place, do I go over and sit with the family? Open the house by staying there and letting folks in? This used to be done when we all belonged to the same church and community, and they rallied around the family.
Food was brought and people stopped over. When my mother passed, Gwen and another friend came over. A neighbor came and my sister-in-law. Lank and I left the house to them while we took care of finalizing the funeral arrangements. It was a load off our shoulders knowing someone was there.
When I lost my brother to the war, the church family came over with food and camaraderie. They took care of us. I will never forget it.
I’m going to call Victor but first I must get some help if I intend to bring food over. The viewing is Friday and funeral mass will be held on Saturday.
I have to go for now so I can plan out the rest of the day.
