Where in the world did that name come from, do you know? Was it because funerals were held in homes in our past years, like they are in other countries, still today? Is it because the process of burial was usually done at home? It is one of my least favorite places but a place we all end up unless there are strange circumstances at the end of one's life.

I made a quick trip to the near by big city to swoop up the GRAND baby after the visitation started. He was glad to see me and did not want me to put him down. I brought him to our house, he fell asleep on the way here, and PaPaw was able to bring him in, lay him in bed, without waking him up. He is worn out. So is his Mommy and his Daddy. Stress is difficult and can be felt by even the little little ones.

You see, tonight, was the viewing for our DIL's Daddy. He looked at peace. There were dozens of people waiting in line to pay their respects to his widow, our DIL's mother, and his family. He was truly a loved and respected man. I wish we had known him before he started being ill.

Someday we will play catch up but for now, it's....see you in the morning, are missed already.
