Our friends funeral service is tomorrow. I've been sitting her tonight looking through all the pictures our friends and his wife have posted on Facebook, and the tears just won't stop. Not for him...he's beyond pain and unhappiness, no matter what you believe happens after death. But for his wife and kids. Tomorrow will be a long day, as his service is in another state, so there is travel in addition to the service itself.
He will be buried in Arlington next week. I most likely won't attend that ceremony. It feels weird to say that I will know someone buried in Arlington. This song by Trace Adkins keeps running through my head.
