Back at Home

I was away for a week due to a death in the family. It wasn’t unexpected, but it came far too soon, and far too fast for those of us left behind. I’ll admit to being in a daze yet. I will greatly miss my brother-in-law. He was a good man, and his laugh was infectious.

While it’s so good to get together with far-flung family members and catch up with them, why does it seem to take a funeral to get together with the extended clan? My brother-in-law would have enjoyed the gathering we held in his honor. His absence was noticeable (duh! but still, I kept expecting to hear his voice, his laugh), and he was missed.

Rest in peace, Chuck.
