Well, we made it to SF and spent the night there before heading to Dallas the next day. It was an emotional moment when I finally got to see my mum but that was to be expected. We have had a few roller coaster days but we keep moving forward. I have called all of the appropriate insurance people and all of the forms are on there way for my mother to sign so she will get some money rolling her way which she will need as she is going to have to have my dad's will probated and that will freeze all assets that are in joint names.
We went to the cemetery a few days ago and I finally got to say good bye to my dad. It's beautiful site and I know he would have been pleased with where he has ended up. My little brother is also going to take part of my dad's ashes and spread them at the farm which he grew up at and that the family still owns. Dad would have loved that and it is where his heart is.
We are taking my mum to Galveston this Friday for the weekend so she can get out of the house and try to do some normal things. We made reservations at the Hotel Galvez which is a historic hotel that James and I stayed at during one of his visits to Texas early in our relationship eight years ago when we used to fly back and forth across the Pacific before I moved to Australia for good!
Well that's all for now. James and I are going to boy's town today for some us time, have lunch and maybe some shopping.
