Somber topic. My apologies.
My brother-in-law passed this morning. We knew this was coming. Lots of advanced planning so he could participate in decisions. One thing we didn’t get to was the little details of the memorial service. We have the big things.
It is my experience that a social time after services is part of the closure process. What experiences have you had that were most appropriate (obviously a personal judgment)? Whatever we do will be catered but we need guidance for the caterer. Carl will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery and there is a delay so there is no rush to a grave site.
I’m the primary logistician and have lots of other things to do in honor of Carl and in support of his wife. My creative soul is worn pretty thin. No guarantees that I’ll do what anyone suggests but everything will be read carefully and considered. Thinking about food is a comfort to me - I’m finding I’m just not very good at it right now.
