Sunset in Hawaii.
A Celebration of Life for my sister’s husband is set for April 12, and a funeral for my mother is set for April 13.
Friends and relatives are coming from all over the world to attend these two events. For example, my nephew will come from Bali, Pete’s friend will come from Australia, and my youngest sister will come from Virginia. She will be staying with me for a week and will be using Lisa’s bedroom, while Lisa stays with Maria. It will be wonderful to see these and other people again.
I have been working on my eulogy for Mom. I hope it goes well, and I hope I don’t get too nervous speaking on the podium.
On April 1, David’s slipper got caught on a step at the gym and he stubbed his toe on the metal strip. He went to the ER and had seven stitches to close the gash. Hopefully, the stitches will be removed on April 10. If not, he will have to wear rubber slippers to the two funerals. Ugh.
The family requests aloha attire, so I intend to wear my muumuu, and David is going to wear an aloha shirt.
And, of course, food will be served.
It should be a fine send-off for Pete and Mom, as we bid a fond farewell to them.
