Its been a month since my cousin, Melissa died in the crash, but for her immediate family the pain is still very real.
Her daughters are now out of the hospital and are getting stronger every day...so the family felt it was time to say goodbye. We will leave in a little while for her funeral and I am anticipating a pretty rough day.
Shad and I will be taking all of the children with us to the service. None of them (except for Maddie) have been to a funeral before, so I'm sure they will have a lot of questions.
They will also be meeting a TON of family members they have never even seen before.
When we lived in Kansas, we didn't make it back much...and when we did, we concentrated on seeing our immediate family.
I have a LARGE family.
I'm a little worried about all four of them getting over-stimulated.
So between the funeral, the questions and the risk of meltdowns, we're feeling a little vulnerable.
Could you pray for us?
