I guess I forgot to save what I wrote about Colm's wake. It was good, there were more people than I expected there. My Uncle John spoke and said a blessing and then he asked my mom to come and speak. She talked about Colm's box, well his coffin, and how we decorated it ourselves. It was such a good project for me, I was able to make something for him, something he got to use, even if it wasn't during his lifetime.
Today is his Resurrection Mass. I guess it is time to get ready now. I hope I can keep it together.
