Well, we are heading up to Missouri tomorrow afternoon. The funeral is being held early Saturday morning at the high school. I think dn was a Senior, but am not positive. My mom is keeping the kids, since it will just be a quick trip up tomorrow and back Sat afternoon. It's a 5 hour drive and not fun with the kids. We can't afford to stay longer (sil isn't exactly up to extra people at her house) so we are coming back a few hours afterwards. We still don't know the details. And I'm trying so hard to be patient with dh. I know he's hurting. Dn is only about 10 years younger than him, so they were kinda close. So he's getting angry about everything and taking it out on my and a bit on the kids. I'm really trying to understand. And I keep reminding him that I know he's in pain, but he needs to not take it out on us. This all still feels like a bad dream. Dh and I were talking and I know this is hard on his siter and her second oldest boy, as the brothers were really close, but the one that makes me cry the most is her 4 year old son. He's just too little to understand and he was also very close to his brother. Oh geez, I don't know if I am going to make it through this weekend either.
