Dad died on my birthday in 2020. The pandemic kept me from attending his funeral in person.
Mom’s funeral came almost a year later. Today, October 1st, 2021.
Sad as we are, there is finally a sense of closure. We celebrated both of their lives today. It was a beautiful service. And loads of people were there.
It was also a time to mourn. Grief at such a time is proof of love. And the evidence was there of how much both of them were loved… by neighbors… by friends… And by family.
We will all heal, but we will also never forget.
