Goodbye Mike

My brother-in-law was buried on Wednesday, so I have been in a little bit of a funk for a few days. Funerals are a mixed bag. You get to see friends and family that you have not seen in many years. There is laughter and memories, but then there is the sadness of saying goodbye. I had to remind myself that life is a gift and we should enjoy it and not waste time dwelling on the inevitable. As a breast cancer survivor, I have been lucky. DH says, it is a good day if you wake up in the morning, make the most of it.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Spending time with family remembering good times sounds like a nice way to celebrate your BIL's life.
