My son got a check today. His check was for over $300, so he has some money to buy things with.
He will do fine. He knows all the things I have done to pinch pennies. He will be living pretty much by himself until his girlfriend graduates from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania in December. He will have a month to think of what is needed and to get it.
I am glad that we finally took care of Mom. So many of my younger relatives got to witness a happy memorial service and I am hoping they will treat their relatives with respect when it is their time to be laid to rest.
Thank you for your prayers for the memorial service, it went well and I enjoyed seeing two of my cousins, a childhood friend-hadn't seen her in 53 years and a man that I used to sell bait to. He is a man of wealth and was so humble saying he was afraid he wouldn't remember our names and wouldn't know what to say to us. I met him at the door and introduced myself to him and got my sister to do the same.
His father and a few other men bought a mountain and started Wisp Ski Resort in Maryland, yet he would come to the memorial for a friend's wife.
