    I'm back in Chico CA staying at my exwife's house with my current wife and son and granddaughter. I'll be leaving in a couple of hours for the 7.5 hr drive home.
    Really great seeing so many family and friends all at once at my mom's memorial service, she really touched a lot of people. seeing friends I knew as teenagers grown up to be grandparents.
    My mom had a way of making people think they were really special to her, like you were her favorite. She was entirely sincere about this-- when you were with her, you were her favorite. She was really into the moment, really present, you knew she was really listening to you, not just pretending to while thinking of something else.
    she was the kindest, most generous person I ever knew, the most outwardly directed I ever knew. She really cared about people and spent her life in service to her fellow men and women.
    I was lucky to have her in my life for so long, and so was thr rest of the world.
    When you lose something irreplaceable you don't mourn for what you lost, you mourn for yourself

    Happy just to be alive
