Bittersweet

Leaving this afternoon for Orange County for Uncle John's memorial and funeral tomorrow. Funerals are bittersweet - it's very sad to say goodbye to your loved one but usually you see relatives that you have not seen in a long time. I can't wait to see my Uncle Sonny (my mom's brother) who is traveling out from Montana. I love this man. Can't wait to see my mom's cousin Janice from Arizona. Adore this lady.

I'm so happy we are all going to be there for my aunt and cousin who have undoubtedly been through the worst week of their life.

Sad that Uncle couldn't win his fight but happy he doesn't have to fight any longer.
