First, thanks for all your kind comments in regards to my last entry. I'm a bit removed from the situation-across the other side of the globe. Today was Otilia's funeral. Unlike funerals here in the states where it can take days for the service and the burial, in the Azores people are customarily buried within 24 hours. I'm sure the family back there are all in a state of shock. My kids were sad, but they are alright. Lizzy changed her Myspace picture. Instead of her picture with the fake tattoos, she is standing with her Tia Otilia in her grand-parent's backyard. Otilia would have loved it. She loved being in pictures, and when she was younger, would put up her hair, put on her makeup and go downtown to get her photos taken for fun. She my daughter have that in common. Yes, I'm going to miss her-especially when I go back to the islands again. It's going to be strange going to the island and not stopping at her house on the corner.
Easter was nice. After church we went to my mom's house for Easter dinner, and it was nice being with my siblings and their kids. My brother brought one of his strange friends over too. I don't know why, but my brother has the strangest friends. At least this friend wasn't the one who talks to aliens who is dating the lesbian stripper from Reno. Oh well, it kept the evening entertaining at least.
