It was a (long) weekend, filled with a wide range of emotions... joy at my nephew's wedding, then sorrow as I learned of the passing of an old friend and also one of my uncles. That's the way it is, especially at family gatherings. I was surprised that I felt quite alone at the reception. I should have expected those emotions, but I think that I never look far enough ahead to be prepared for the wave of sadness. But, it's over now. No more weddings? Haha... maybe.
