Meme had such a beautiful life, and in talking with the preacher on Thursday afternoon I learned a few things about her, too. We shared many laughs, and many tears, in talking with the preacher. And Meme looked so good. We were able to have a private family-only viewing on Thursday, and she looked just like the "old" Meme. I was worried because I didn't want my last visions of her to be the ones from the last time I had seen her at the hospital, and I couldn't have been more pleased with how she looked. So peaceful, so beautiful, and in no more pain.
Thank you so much to all of you for your thoughts and prayers, to those of you who have reached out privately, who have commented on my posts on Facebook, and to those who may have just kept their thoughts and prayers to themselves. I appreciate each and every one of you for your kindness and thoughtfulness during this difficult time.
