We knew it was coming, and we tried to prepare ourselves for it. Unfortunately, it's not something that you can ever really be prepared for. It doesn't seem possible that he could possibly be gone and I'll never have another conversation with him, never hug him again or laugh at with him at some dumb story he told. He was by far the most influential person in my life and him not being there just seems like an impossibility.
Can y'all help me? I am trying to write his obit and I don't know what to put in it. My mom had three babies who died within days of being born, should they be listed as preceding him him death? He has 4 brothers and 7 sisters, should I list them individually? My brother and I are trying to make funeral arrangements and we are going to try to transport him to a town 8 hours away from where he is to bury him near his mother. We've never done this before, so we are figuring it all out. Anyway, off to make more phone calls.
