Have just seen this thread.

I'm sorry to hear this news. ((Scholar))
It's nice that the funeral went well.

That is good advice, Leigh. I will write down the anniversary and birthday from Lillian's obituary into my appointment calendar.

Milt will need friends in the coming months. The first twelve months are the hardest. One of our friends has just "celebrated" the first anniversary of his wife's passing. His year of "firsts" is now behind. Try and remember the birthdays and anniversaries, Scholar, these are particularly hard times.

Thanks for the comfort and hugs.

I attended the funeral this morning, and got there without any problems (some people are still having accidents on the icy roads, but I took due care).

Many friends I knew from when I was with the congregation gave me warm and friendly greetings. A man who taught the adult Sunday school class happily let me ride along in his car to the committal service, after the church funeral.

After the services, there was a variety meal. I got to spend more time with the family and friends. Some of my friends who were working in the kitchen gave me several containers of food from what was left over, to take home. I had one of them for supper tonight.

I promised Milt I would come by to see him. Right now, with relatives who came for the funeral, he has plenty of company. I will be by after some weeks, when he will perhaps be more hungry for company again.

One of Milt and Lillian's grandchildren is a U.S. Marine. He attended the funeral in his dress uniform.

Lillian was a choir director in her younger days. The first hymn the congregation sang was one for which she had written both the words and music.

Milt and Lillian were married more than 54 years.:)

The funeral will be at 10:00, at a church where I used to help.

I called the funeral home, and the funeral director wasn't sure of the time at first. He told me he thought it was 11:00, and I asked if he needed to check that, after which he looked for a written record. I believe he has several scheduled that day. I'm glad I asked him to be sure!

The church is a good distance away, so I'll be leaving earlier in the morning.

Poor Milt -

I remember how my Gram's husband cried like a child when he lost her - it was heartbreaking.

Many thoughts of comfort headed Milt's way

Sad news Scholar, I hope Milt's family will be there for him. :(

Always sad to lose one close. I was also told of the passing of an acquaintance today. He'd lived in our town with his sister for many years. She is finding it very hard, at the moment. I ran into her at the post office and she'd not yet gotten on to us. The funeral is on Tuesday.

Our heart and prayers go out to Milt and the family.

May Angels fly her safely home. RIP

I am sorry for your loss. I hope the funeral goes Ok. (((Scholar)))

I got a phone call, telling me about it, this morning. I have posted about an elderly couple in poor health whom I visit from time to time. They did not get out much (couldn't drive, for one thing), and were unhappy that the friends whom they used to see when they were more active rarely came to visit. They lived out in the country. I stop by to see them from time to time. She is the wife, in the pair. Now the husband, Milt, will be alone in the house.:(

The son and his family live in another house on the same property, so he will only be a short walk away. He will be able to get along. But, time will sure be heavy on his hands.

I will be attending the funeral at their church on Saturday. I plan on dressing in my warmest good clothes so that I can attend the committal as well.
