Yesterday the hospital where mom passed had a memorial service for everyone who had recently passed away there. Not certain how often they do it.
It was a lovely traditional protestant service with old time hymns…In the Garden, Turn your Eyes Upon Jesus and Amazing Grace. I found it beautiful and moving. I think my bro was glad to go and he is still grieving so hard but he’s not religious so not sure if he found comfort in that aspect. My sis while she appreciated the service said she didn’t like digging it up and getting all sad again.
Thing is brother and I are still sad, still grieving, still having trouble dealing with the loss. So for me and maybe him I think it was just good to know we aren’t alone. To still be sad and grieving after two months is not unusual. Hmmm….just an observation.
