Six Word Saturday!

A Funeral And Then Vegas Bound

Today is the funeral of our dear friend. Today is also the day I'm leaving for Vegas. I was actually supposed to leave at 9:20am but I had to change my flight so that I could attend the funeral. My husband unfortunately, was not able to change his flight because we paid for his flight through a package deal. He was able to go to the visitation yesterday at least. Needless to say, that was extremely hard too.

I'm dreading today. I miss our friend, Bob. He was such a wonderful man and my parents have put a lot of effort into making his service a nice one. I have also tried to do my part in helping them a long the way.

Service is at 2pm and once 3:15pm rolls around, I have to be ready to cut out to the airport and make my flight at 5:15. It's 10:13am now and I know the next few hours are going to fly by.

All I know is, I'm having my husband meet me at the hotel where the taxi will be dropping me off, with a drink in hand to help me with my nerves of the day.

We Love You, Bob!! You are truly missed already!!


Now head on over to Cate's.

I know Bob would be pleased by the efforts to make the service as he would want it. Glad you were able to make the necessary changes that allowed for you to be at the service and still "book it" to Vegas, "baby"!! Enjoy that drink and the fun of your trip. Yes, I admit it, I'm a bit jealous!!

Sorry to hear and must have been hard to face without your husband by your side.

Just as hard for him I imagine, not being able to attend and be with you.

Hope your trip away is good
