Well, it is done. I walked the March of Dimes WalkAmerica 10K . Thanks to all my family and friends who supported me and my sister, Natalie, for going with me and walking. It completely wiped me out. But, it was for a good cause.
I went to Bryce's funeral yesterday. It was very emotional for everyone. It was especially difficult seeing the slide show with pictures of him as a baby. As a mother, that really grabbed my heart and squeezed it. I was amazed to see how many people were there. That is a tribute to a life well-lived to have so many people who were touched by your life come to say goodbye.
Talking to Jill, she and her husband looked so dazed. I can't imagine what will come in when the shock wears off. She said that she had to identify Bryce at the hospital the night of the accident and she can't get that image of him out of her mind. I could only tell her how sorry I was, anything else would have sounded like total bullshit. Why do people say such stupid things in the face of such immense loss. As if there is anything to say at all.
