Funeral Services Will be Held on Thursday
November 12, 2008 8:29pm CST
The services for my ex-husband will be on Thursday. I am trying to brace myself for this. Funerals are not something that I enjoy attending. Does anyone really enjoy them? Our children are gathered at their father's house and are making a photo collage. My daughters are practicing their songs. I have made a couple of dishes to share at the reception which will follow the burial. Gosh, such a hard word, burial. My husband has been very helpful in helping me through this. I have called him "Mark" several times in the past 2 days. Mark is constantly on my mind. Last night as I was driving home from work I asked for a sign that would tell me that he had crossed over and was in a good place. When I got home my husband had music playing over the television from our cable service. We sat down for dinner and the song "Spirit in the Sky" came on. That was my sign. Mark loved this song. I sang it to him on Sunday before he crossed over. My heart still aches, but I know he is in a better place. He is with the Spirit in the Sky.

I am with you in spirit at this difficult time of your loss and bereavement. Even though you have been separated from Mark, you and your children still have strong ties with him, and it will be comforting to him that the people who are closest in his life will handle the necessary arrangements to give him a proper final send-off. Be strong and know that God has brought Mark to a better place. My prayers are with you at this time.
