Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Lovely, Wendy. And what gnu said.

The 3rd anniversary of Daddy's death was a few days ago. It didn't seem appropriate -and I didn't have a strong need to remark on it at that immediate time Talked with Mom tonight about plans for the family to go up to the University the Saturday in May for their annual memorial service for people who donated their bodies. Family emergency prevented us from going up the year his ashes were scattered and due to a glitch in the University's system we were notified of the date last year.

Will be a long day at that Saturday, driving to Morgantown and back to Mom's - and also a lovely day. Looking forward to it. My nephews, who my parents raised after Kaye died are riding up with us, sans grandnieces (who I delight in, but are so young that they demand alot of attention.) I have no doubt it will be a good trip and a good visit and it will be settling to finally have an image and memory of where Daddy's ashes landed. It would have been OK regardless, but definitely better to finally have a mental space with a visual image.
