I do not have the time or the energy to give this day its due in this entry but feel the need to be at my keyboard. We will participate in a visitation this afternoon, a daunting task ahead , but a task of love and loyalty and one I still value despite changing views concerning the traditions surrounding the death of a loved one. The two days we spent receiving people when Zac died were exhausting and excruciating but remain a treasure in my heart. Today is Mom’s day and I will take the time to process all that follows in some other blog entry. So on this Sunday morning I will focus on the hours ahead and rely on the support of family,friends and strangers all of whom will gather to pay tribute to the life of Iva Bradley.
