Boxes And Bags

Saturday was Tom's funeral in his hometown in PA. I could not be there. But according to Barb it was very nice and very meaningful for his family. I think the first week after his funeral here was a lull for me. I am back to thinking about him more and more. It could also be because I went by his house again. I picked up some things for Keegan I promised him from his daddy's house and some more things for the dogs. I went farther than the garage this time. But even the garage is full of memories. Camping equipment and his snowboards, even his boots. Eleven years together holds alot of mental snapshots.

"In the course of twenty crowded years one parts with many illusions. I did not wish to lose the early ones. Some memories are realities, and some are better than anything that can ever happen again."
