We know this is late and I’m getting older. Just a matter of I overslept and didn’t realize how late it was until some chores were done. The wife is in her final resting place, so I guess I got too relaxed and slept like normal people. We thought the service, and everything went well.
My brother rode with me to the cemetery, and we had something happen we hadn’t seen before. A big brown praying mantis was on the side of the car and as we started moving and climbed up the drivers side window. Thought no more about until services there were finished and we left to go to a lunch we had catered.
When we got back to the car, the praying mantis was on top and giving us a look that said, ‘let’s cruise’. And when we got back to the mortuary for the lunch the critter was still on top of the car! One of the mortuary employees, who was in the vehicle in front of us, asked if we knew we had a praying mantis on the car the entire time.
Another interesting thing came at the end of services in the chapel. After the preacher had finished and sat down the song ‘Elvira’ came through the speakers and there was a mixture of giggles and gasps as the wife’s favorite song played to end the service.
We’d like to thank all the friends and family who showed up as it meant a lot to us. Enjoy our Tuesday as a well-rested me is going to
