Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
Just a quick blog today to say that my friend Jackie's funeral was the most upbeat, happy funeral I have ever attended. There was laughter, singing, clapping and more laughter. The picture I have of her clapping on my blog was up when everyone came in and at some point, Tommy had them put it up again. It was as if she was clapping and laughing along with all the rest of us. And, when John boy started playing The Charlie Brown theme song as they rolled the casket out, the whole place erupted in laughter.
To say I will miss her is an understatement. We have gone through so many ups and downs together in this life, that it is hard for me not to email her or pick up the phone and call her. I am sure it will be that way for quite awhile.
Thank you Jackie for the joy you brought to so many people. You are sorely missed. I love you.
