McEwen's Funeral Home really provides very personal service, and the people there are so personable. Today's mail included a letter from them - a small card actually, and inside, as part of the card itself, is a copy of Nova's obituary. I had forgotten that they do that. I have one of Alexis' obituary from them too. A matching pair. I need to go and actually buy the book to put together his memory book. Somewhere to assemble the little bits, his pictures, the poems, his foot and hand prints, a lock of hair (which isn't a lock at all, his hair was so short, it's just a little pile stuck to a piece of tape.)
There are things that need to be done, and I'm just so far from ready to do them all. I can't even look at his pictures, any of them, but especially the pre-surgery ones. I just can't.
