Winding down

How fitting that with the change of the seasons, summer...blossoming flowers and green trees, to fall...leaves falling and flowers dying comes the burial of my grandmother. My grandmother's ashes will be buried tomorrow...the first day of fall.

I woke up this morning to an email from my brother. He wrote a eulogy that he would like me to read tomorrow. I don't like to cry, especially first thing in the morning, but I couldn't help it when I read what he had written. He specifically asked that I read it and I don't want to let him down. He feels very guilty that he can't be here for the memorial service and I feel bad for him as well. I know it hurts him. I just need to be able to get through it without losing it.
