Where are we today
clic on a pic to enlarge itAnother good nights sleep and woke up to find it had rained most of the night and had cleared the snow from the roads. Ok, will be a good driving day and no more snow to shovel. After breakfast and a walkabout the block, we got all spiffied up, More presentable for the funeral service and celebration on Ma's life. It has been so long since I tied a tie almost forgot how. I did wear a suit for 13 years in an office job but that was a lifetime ago. Back in the 60's and 70's.
|yup we do clean up once in a while|
|today's drive and the roads were|
all clean and good travelling
Just a one hour drive to the funeral home in Whitby Ontario, and here with our family all 3 of my kids and 3 of our 7 grands. My brother, sister their spouses, nephew and his wife, a very good friend of mine Jim who we see each other not often enough (we went to public school together over 1/2 a century ago) and another good friend Bill and his wife that drove in from Montreal. Even 5 members of Suzie's family arrived, was nice to see them again as well. Along with so many other friends that I have not seen for many many years.
The celebration of Ma's life was wonderful , yes a few tears, a few eulogies and a few laughs as well, remembering Ma with some of good times that we had in our lifetimes. And all shared over the years.
We left the funeral home shortly after 3 pm and made our way back to the Toronto airport. Dropped the car off and they were nice enough to take us to our hotel (no charge) The Comfort Inn in Etobicoke. Check in here before 5 pm settled in our room and down stairs for a wonderful fish and chip meal with a caesar salad to start.
