7. Also awake and sharing a somewhat similar grief in the recent death of family

No service or ceremony, just the last four of us gathered at a vista spot up in the foothills and sharing a few remembered anecdotes with a chuckle or a tear as needed as we scattered ashes. It brought closure and strengthen our family bond. No one even asked to join us in remberence; makes me sad that our younger kin are so shallow and self centered and it doesn't occur to them that respect and compassion are basic human traits.

I'm the oldest of our little tribe now and I hold out no expectations for anything different. When my three remaining siblings gather next, I hope they can find good memories of our life together to make them laugh.

Wishing you and your wife the same, good memories of family and friends, both near and remembered, are worthy of being sharing. Thank you for doing that.
