I know...you were hoping she called me back at some point, right? Well...she didn't, and the next two days I walked around in a proverbial daze as I tried to do what I needed to do, all while my family made the arrangements for Sal's burial.
Wednesday and Thursday were a blur, and and Friday night was the night of the wake. Sal's wife chose to have a closed casket and the funeral on Saturday. It was heart wrenching. When I arrived home Friday night, I was emotionally and physically wiped out. I had no idea how I was going to get through Saturday.
Imagine my surprise when I hit my answering machine and there was a message...from Kate.
Only three days after I had called her to tell her the news.
