My Ex-Husband's Funeral

Wednesday, March 17, 2010
On Sunday, we attended my ex-husband’s memorial service. He died after a long and brave battle with cancer. We’d been divorced for many years, and he remarried, but we remained friends, and it killed me to see him suffer and die so young.

The service was difficult, to say the least. My son struggled over whether to give a eulogy. He wasn’t sure he could get through it, and he didn’t want to break down in front of friends and coworkers. But he did it.

He gave a beautiful eulogy, which was incredibly moving. At the end, he said, “I will always love him and will always keep trying to make him proud of me.” And as I listened to his words, I imagined his dad smiling with pride, as he heard his boy speak so lovingly in front of all those people. I am so proud of him. I don’t think I could’ve done half as well.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss but I'm glad to hear that your son was able to say the eulogy over his dad. It's hard for us to lose someone we love. His father was looking down on him smiling with joy.

I will continue to pray for you and your family because even though the Funeral is over the process of grieving has just begun.

Blessings to you Sandy!!

Thank you, Lisa, for your kind words. And you're right - grieving will take some time.
