Aren't the flapper shoes great?
Being at this reunion without Rudy was sad, but I was braced for it. I knew he would be remembered. I knew people would offer condolences. Being braced helps tremendously. It's the unexpected things that are hardest.
I enjoyed seeing the people who were there, but, I really missed the many who were not. I don't know how heaven works, but if loved ones do get to hang around occasionally and see things that are happening here, I'll bet it was really crowded at the reunion today. Ruth's brother Grady was probably the proudest one of all. His great granddaughter just received her doctorate in Forensic Toxicology. Her degrees came from GA Tech and UGA. I'm proud to say, I share some of her genes. :-D
