Thoughts....

Hello dear world

Good evening how is everyone ? I wanted to come by and share a few things with you. My folks and I just got back a little while ago.

First of all the church service was held at Dixon Grove Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Ga. I can tell you that the church service was really really nice. I walked up to see my coworker's husband whose name is Billy Thomas Jones. He looked really peaceful. I then walked up to my coworker and gave her a hug. The family was still shook up having to say good-bye to Billy.

During the service friends and family got to say a few words and then the preacher did the service which he did quite wonderfully. There were tears and laughter and a lot of memories shared about Billy.

After the church service there was a memorial service at a cemetery called Forest Hills Memorial Gardens which is a nice cemetery. The funeral procession was helped along by lots of Deputy Sheriff's and Police Officers. I thought the memorial service was really nice and I got to talk to my coworker for a few minutes and hug her and let her know that I loved her and I was thinking about her. A lot of the family and friends were also at the memorial service which was quite nice. I'm sure that my coworker appreciated seeing us at the service. I think that Billy would have walked up to us and gave us hugs. I know that it will be hard for my coworker and her family at this time.

So my dear world how was your day ? How were things in your neck of the woods. I have to say that it was a pretty somber day for me but I know that Billy was never be forgotten. That's about it for me. I'm kind of tired so I will say good-night my dear world. Do take care everyone and I will talk to you again soon.

Bye

I does seem like it was a nice service, but I'm sure everyone just assumed would hot have had to hold one.  Have yourself a good Sunday and do something that makes you happy.

It sounds like a very nice service. That was nice of you to attend both services. Some people here just attend the church service. I'm sure they really appreciated your friendship.
