Last night at church I had told my pastor I was at peace with her passing. Last year when I went home and back in 2005 I did my best to make amends with my family, had I have not did that I am sure this would be bothering me much more.

Right now I am working on getting a vehicle to drive out there for the funeral. Jeff Patrick from MRO is going to get one of his vehicles registered for me hopefully today so that I can use that.

Thank you DraggonAss for posting this, I did not expect it but I welcome it. As soon as her obit gets posted I will post it here.
