We had a tough night last night because everywhere we turn in our house, something reminds us of Wo. I slept in her bed last night that is in our living room with our two little dogs hoping I might get a sign that she is around. I did find a penny on the floor which might be from her. I know she will never show herself through butterflies, birds, bugs, or anything else with wings because she doesn't like them and is scared of them. I know you probably think I've gone off the deep end, but I do believe people come back somehow to let us know they are ok. Gio stayed at his parents house last night because he couldn't bare being at his house by himself. We told him he can stay here whenever he wants and we want to continue to be in his life as often as he wants us. Mark, Ryan, Gio and I went to breakfast at Farmer Boy this morning for breakfast. Then we went to the funeral home to make arrangements for Lauren. The lady that took care of us made everything very easy and we feel good about our decisions. Lauren will be buried in Uniontown so we can go visit her gravesite whenever we want. Her obituary will be in the Akron Beacon Journal on Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm sure if you google the paper you will find it online. Here are the details:
