Brave New World

I have taken care of bereavement stuff today. Oddly, all online. The funeral home has flowers, gifts, and cards that you can send online. We sent some fruit and cheese.

Now, I’m not one to find this tacky or offensive. It’s a way to preserve the old traditions and to welcome new technology. And, since I (we) cannot be there in person to express our sympathies and to share stories, I can look at the online guest book to read about Stacey, and see how she touched other lives.

Also, a friend of ours is gathering blog posts and facebook comments to create a Stacey book.

I also have a strange compulsion to buy a purse–in honor of Stacey.
