Mom Died

I missed a phone call from my sister over night. When I checked in with her this morning, I learned that my mom died in the night. My mom's been seriously ill for a few months, but her death surprised us. Indeed, I had plans to visit her for a couple of days after the math conference, but it was not meant to be. People plan, the universe laughs.

Laura changed my rental car reservation and I drove to Rehoboth Beach to be with my sister and brother who were already there. My other sister arrived shortly after I did.

We spent the better part of the afternoon making funeral arrangements and informing people.

The funeral is Monday. People are making arrangements to come. Emily, Rachel and Laura are all planning to come. There's still a lot to do tomorrow.
