the funeral
at 11:00am yesterday everyone gathered at the church to say a final goodbye to tim. it was a beautiful catholic mass. when mass was over we all followed the casket outside and just after the casket was put in the hearse i felt a wonderful cool breeze and single rain drop fell, and then another. it was as if tim was saying goodbye to us. we all proceeded to my sister-in-laws house for the standard gathering with food, drink and story telling. all in all it was a beautiful day to start healing for everyone.

yesterday afternoon i attended the viewing and vigil for my nephew tim. i had been sick with nerves for a week but felt a strange sense of calm come over me when i walked into the mortuary. i am not a person who takes open caskets well but something was different. tim was in his favorite hawaiian shirt with a pack of cigarettes in his pocket and a small bottle of jack daniels (his favorite) by his side. he looked so peaceful. my niece christy was the first family member to speak, even through the tears she kept going as if she were drawing strength from tim. her daughter alexis, who is only eight, spoke next. i was so proud of that little girl, she stood so strong in front of a nearly packed room, i never could have done that. the church deacon reminded everyone that while tim has passed away he will live on in our hearts forever. it was a beautiful service and truly a celebration of his life. today, the funeral and our last chance to say goodbye to the man that brought so much joy and laughter into our lives. rest in peace timmy.

i will miss you

my nephew tim passed away this morning after many years of fighting cancer. while due to family circumstances i only have had him in my life for the past three years or so i have truly grown to love him. tim was 49 years old with a heart of gold, a beautiful smile, a wonderful and loving personality and an infectious laugh. tim, i love you and will miss you, thank you for bringing so much love and laughter into my life.
