Sad day today.  I went to my friend's father's funeral.  I'm a baby at funerals... even if I don't know the person very well I still cry.  I did know my friend's father fairly well, he was a very nice man.  He loved to talk and we had some interesting conversations about the most obscure topics.

Some of you may have also heard of the earthquake and tsunami in the South Pacific which affected Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga.  Well, my Aunt, Uncle and my cousin's two babies were killed by the tsunami.  They apparently had about 5 minutes to try and save themselves but did not make it.  Along with them, my mother's family home perished.  So much destruction.

Anytime people I know die, I always lie awake at night thinking about them and life in general.  So, this week I've had quite a few late nights lying in bed thinking.  Anyway, I don't really have much else to say about it so I'll leave it at that.

  1. Oh Di, I am so sorry. Your family was the first thing I thought about when news of the tsunami broke. The level of destruction is terrifying, and it's just heartbreaking to see and hear of the impact - my heart goes out to all of you affected by it.

    I am exactly as you at funerals, and honestly do not deal well with death at all. Hold Matt and bunny close. Sending you tight hugs, x
