road trip : day two

My aunt and I met with the funeral director this morning, and everything's in motion. The next available day for a funeral is Monday, so now we'll simply notify everyone, and wait.

This smalltown funeral home handles about 90 funerals a year, and (Murphy's Law) now they have four scheduled in four days.

Long ago, we decided it would be best to hold two services: one in Mississippi (mom's side of the family) and another in Kentucky (dad's side, where she lived for 42 years). So, we'll hold one Monday morning here in Grenada MS and another the next afternoon in Louisville KY. The cost to transport mom is about equal (flying versus driving) so we opted to use ground transportation. Mom always hated the idea of flying, anyway.
