    Susan, I’m thinking of you today. I wish I could be there for the services, but I’ll be staying here in Lubbock for Dean’s mom’s funeral. I also have to work. How lucky you are to have that Kappa connection with your mom! How special. I lost my mom in ’07 so I’ve been where you are. It’s tough, so don’t try to be brave. Grieve however you need to because there’s no right way. Call your friends if you need anything because they really will want to help.
