Of funerals, and family times...

Haven't posted in quite awhile... Mother in laws funeral was a week ago today, last Wednesday.
It was held in a Catholic church.
Joan and I got married in a catholic church and we attended it for a while.
I never liked the pomp and ceremony of it all. Seemed rather bizarre and contrived. As I have grown in knowledge biblically, it only reinforces my earlier findings about the Catholic church.
Not going to go into it but... I disagree with almost all of their teachings.
What i wanted to post was more about the serendipity of funerals.
We were blessed to have our whole immediate family home for the first time in five years.
Yeah, we have all been together in San Diego and San Antonio during the years Eric was in the marines. But we had Ryan home for four days during this "celebration" of life time.

It was fun to have everyone here.
BBQing
and smoking cigars.
Just "being."
Ryan left last Saturday and Eric went to San Diego for a friends wedding.
The house is quiet now... but it was a wonderful week.

Hi Tim, Glad to hear you were all able to get together and have a good time. And I agree with what you said about the Catholic church too. That's a whole big subject in itself.
