It Went Well!!

 
Better than expected.  No tears and I remembered to breathe!!  I even improvised some stuff like memories I will always have.  Right before I got up to speak I was so nervous that I was shaking.  But I tried to imagine all of you, my friends, sitting there.  I guess it worked. 
 
His sister spoke to and her eulogy was very emotional.  She spoke of how John  took care of his dad after strokeand his mom during her cancer.  A few other folks spoke who I didn’t know but we all kind of bonded after the service.
 
My only problem was coming down with the flu on Tuesday!!  Grrrrrr!!  Came home and slept for a few hours.  Feeling better!
 
So, it was a nice ceremony but I’m glad it’s over with.  No burial ceremony….  cremation.
 
Take care ALL of my friends and thanks for your thoughts!!  Sorry it’s Country but…..  give at listen.
 
BTW, I hope all of you who could, listened to this song!!!!

    Very Proud of you Bob!   I’ve read before that mourning can sometimes use as much energy as it takes to run a marathon.   So please do take care of yourself and get better soon.  Sending you love and healthy wishes! ttfn

    NEVER be apologetic about the music you put on your space—it is your space and YOUR choice.  It’s what YOU like.  It all helps us know you better.  Glad your eulogy went well and you were calm enough to get through it all.  It’s a tough one.  We knew you could do it OK!  Have a great holiday and try to relax, Bob!!!

    Glad to hear that you not only did your speech but did some improve too!!! I usually do improve, I won’t write  a written speech. I just write the topics down on a cue card and flip when I’ve said what I had to say!Very proud of you!– Fizz —
