So many of you have asked about the funeral etc.  Unfortunately the church only allows immediate family b/c of the virus.  So the 5 of us will be attending and mom feels that dad would have liked it to be a small service anyway.  Because it's Lent the church doesn't even allow flowers.  In addition, we are super aware of mom's age and she's not been sleeping great so we want to limit our interactions with people outside of our little group until this virus has passed.  I hope you all understand. Dad will be cremated after the funeral and mom will keep his ashes here until she decides to take them to the cemetery in Orlando.  These are strange times for sure.  But please know that our family has felt the love, prayers, and food (from our kind neighbors) coming from all over and we can't thank you all enough!!  Virtual hugs from all of us!!  Stay safe and God Bless you all!!
