A retelling of my life in DC and all the stupid ass sh!t I get myself into...

What a waste...

Yesterday, I attended a funeral service for a beautiful, kind, charming, and sweet young woman. She was a mother that would have done anything for her kids and had a smile that would brighten any room. The picture below doesn't do her justice as she was absolutely stunning.

I've never seen a service so full. The parking lot was packed, the over flow lot was packed. In fact, it was standing room only out side the doors when I got there. Truly, she has touched many lives.

When I went to the service, I thought to myself I'm tough, I don't need a tissue. I don't cry... I was wrong. When her little boy got up in front of everyone to tell them that "he had the best mommy ever" anyone with out a tear in their eyes had their emotional wall torn down right at that very moment.

Thank you for your comments about her service.

This is her brother and it's been a hard week. One correction though. It was her son that got up to speak. He's been through a whole lot in his life and his ability to get up and say something made him more of a hero in my book.

Thank you for the correction. I couldn't see anyone that was speaking from where I was standing.

Understandable. He was very timid and soft spoken, but brave for getting up there.

Thus why everyone in the place broke down. It was very sad moment.
