After spending a better part of our weekend driving between home and Athens, it's good to be home again. I'm so glad I went back today for Mama Dy's Celebration of Life service. It was a blessing to attend the graveside where family members and close friends shared some of their favorite memories and life lessons learned sitting beside Mama Dy in her big front porch swing. She was a woman who wasn't in favor of formality and her family honored that in the visitation and memorial services as best they could. There were plenty of tears, but there was a whole lot of laughter too, which is definitely the way she would have wanted it.
