Arrangements for Dad

The arrangements for my father were made on Tuesday, but his wife decided to change them today for whatever reason. As it stands now, there will still be a service in Anderson on Monday, but we are not sure as to whether he will be buried, like he wanted, or cremated, like his wife now wants. The calling is from 12-1pm and the funeral at 1pm at Roselle Johnson Funeral Home in Anderson, IN.

My grandmother and family have arranged a memorial service for him tomorrow night at Abundant Love Church of God at 6pm. That way his friends and family here in Indianapolis can actually gather to remember him. I think that's what should have been done in the first place, but apparently when you're married to someone for 10 months you know everything that makes sense when they die.

This is pretty much the worst thing I have ever gone through. Tomorrow night I will fall apart, but Monday will be the worst. I know I can make it through it, but right now it seems impossible.

Kendra, speaking from experience - you carry the hurt and the loss with you for a long while...and sometimes it creeps up and suprises you and you find yourself in tears...but rest in the knowledge that there is the one Father that will always be present to comfort you. Each day gets a little easier, though you miss him just the same. So sorry for your loss and praying for your strength and healing to come from the only One who has the overflow to give it.
