It was a decision made by all of us. We all agreed. We had it done. We got an urn and even got some mini-urns as keepsakes with some ashes in them. Everything went as planned. Until I saw it. All that was left of her were ashes in an urn. I immediately felt likeContinue reading “So we had my mom cremated.”
Yes, just give me a minute. Do we have to go? For the last time, yes. You know this is important to her. And you know she hates me. Look, I know she’s opinionated. But this is kind of an obligation.
