This morning is my brother-in-law, Ken's funeral.
I know the church will be filled with family and friends.
We will all be reminded how he was such a good person
and how he loved to sit and talk/discuss just about anything.
His death has left a very real hole in his children's lives
and that of his grandchildren.
On Monday evening Ron and I dropped by his daughter's home.
She, her husband and their two girls, were doing the best
they could considering what the past two weeks has brought them.
Here are a few photos of our visit:
This is Smokey, a Mini Rex rabbit they have had for about three months.
It is the softest little thing I have ever felt.
And very friendly and curious.
These are tulips that were being encouraged to open just a little
for the upcoming service.
Their colours exuded a brilliance and hope for the future.
Yes, life does stop and take a different turn.
This turn creates a new 'track' or 'road' on which we move forward.

Life needs to go on.
