A sad day for us.

V and I are off tomorrow to my hometown for the funeral of my cousin Dale. We were down today for some family events but came home this evening and will leave the children home tomorrow. This is someone who my children didn't really know but who I grew up with. It was one of those odd relationship.
My father was an afterthought child- the youngest of 6 children. His first niece was born when he was 4 so this cousin of mine was only 1o years younger than my father. But he was family and I grew up with his children and spent a lot of time at their house.
This is a cousin who has been in a nursing home for the last 3 years since he had surgery for a brain tumor (just one more reason I was so worked up about the possibility of V having a brain tumor). In some ways it is a relief for his family but it is always hard.
Tomorrow will be a long day but then I only have to work three more days before I have 10 days off. I can hardly wait.
