I haven't posted in a while. We lost my mother-in-law earlier this month and I wanted to take a little blog break
I was asked to write the eulogy for her funeral, as I did for my dad's a few years ago. Millie didn't do many things in her life, but one thing I heard over and over at her wake was that she was a good friend. I'd like to share a passage from the eulogy I wrote, something inspired by thinking about the expression, "We all die alone."
Feeling the support of friends and family these past weeks reminded me more than ever that we need to be grateful for all of them, near and far, and to realize more than ever that we are not born alone and that, whether our families are by our side or not in our final moments, we do not die alone when we have had love and friendship in our lives. It is always and eternally with us.
