Thank you all so much. It was a very sad day. It was 20 degrees out, I wore my coat during the final viewing, the Mass and the service. I honestly forgot I was even "hiding something" I was so "in it" My grandfather was the District Chief for Boston Fire Department for 40+ years, married to his beloved wife for 68 years. There were 9 grandchild, and 18 great grandchildren to remind us of what he created. My brother, is now the 4th generation only son and the only one to carry on our family name. I reminded him yesterday to give me a nephew. I also shared my news only with him. He welled with tears.
I got through the day, told one person I wanted to (and can keep my secret) and can still tell my children and the rest of the family in the way I want to. I want to thank you all again, you are wonderful women!!
