I Lost My Favorite Person On My Favorite Day

Danielle Stracci, writing for Fairfield County Moms Blog:

Today was a different type of rummaging though. My mother and I were looking for a broach to put on my grandmother to complete her outfit for her wake and funeral. Getting my pickiness in jewelry from her, I knew we had to find just the right one.

A really terrific piece of writing by my wife, including the eulogy she gave at her Grandmother's funeral. The eulogy is based on Joe Brainard's I Remember, a book I love and have come to love to teach.
