Well, my Mom's service is on Saturday, so I'm headed out to Denver tonight on the red eye, and not the crip kind. I never like those long flights, and it was harder to gear up for this one because of what's waiting on the other end.
But it's one of those big life passages, and so I'm going. Five of my six siblings will be there, and as a dear friend said this morning: "It'll be good. It'll give your `ohana closure."
I hope so. Took Koko out on the trail to get a good Kauai fix before I went, and could actually see the water falling down Makaleha, with some of it blown by the wind. What a place. Needless to say, it fortified me.
Thanks for all the condolences and kind words and support.
Remember -- just let it all go. 99.9% of it is bullshit, anyway.
