Answer: A time to celebrate the life of a loved one and the love still living.
Here's the love inspired by Eva as we celebrated her life together.
We told stories, looked at old photos, remembered funny incidents...
We took pictures of the kids... (all of us cousins who grew up together.) This one is me and my cousin, Mike.
And this is me and Nicole.
(How did I miss photo opps with Mitch and Mark?)
And of the kids kids:-)
So what's a wake? A time to remember and reconnect. A time to laugh, talk, cry, and grieve. Grief isn't all about tears. It's also about honoring the love that is still living.
