The funeral is over. We're home again. A lasagna is in the oven. I think it's Liz K's (thanks Liz). Martin is lying down til it's ready.
It was a beautiful funeral. The crowd was huge and attentive. The service and the sermon were Christ and resurrection centered. Everyone said it made a big impact and helped them. I'll try and make it available, here. Text: John 11, the death and raising of Lazarus.
The special music was superbly performed. Stefan's cello teacher Grazyna played one of his favorite pieces: Bach's prelude to cello suite #1. Hear it here. Kristin played "My Shepherd will supply my need."
It was a terribly cold day. There was fresh blowing snow. The roads were icy. I was just praying nobody would get hurt just because they were on the way to the funeral. One person ended up in the ditch, waiting for 4 hours to get out and never made it to the funeral; but I've heard of no injuries. There were sun dogs in the sky. The pall bearers froze.
I won't write anything else today. There are so many thoughts and feelings and lots of exhaustion.
God bless all. Thanks for everything everyone has done.
