It's Sunday again and I am ready for church.
My friend, Bobby M., died yesterday about 11:45. Karan, his wife, called me while Leslie and I were still in Joplin. When we got home, about 5:00, we went by to visit her. We talked briefly about the services for Bobby. His pastor is a pretty new pastor and had completed seminary just a short while ago. He is Korean and this is his first church. He called me and I talked to him later in the day. The services will be held in his church, Trinity United Methodist Church. I was to help him with it. Karan wants a celebration of Bobby's life instead of a funeral. I then learned that he had never done a funeral service and didn't seem to know how to begin. He wanted me to send him the order of service. So I did that. I have a feeling I will be more or less in charge. I have done several dozen funerals and celebrations of life over the years so that's not a problem. But David was Bobby's pastor. Karan is to meet with the funeral home today and make arrangements for a day for the services. The obit is not out yet so it's too early to make a definite plan.
I have had my breakfast and fed Missy. I have read the paper and I am ready for church.
After church we will decide where to eat lunch. We may go back to "Just Us". Bob and Phyllis F and I really like to go there. I can call ahead and reserve a table. I will wait and see what the group wants to do.
After the service, John and Leslie were going to go to Hong Kong Delight and Phyllis and Bob and I don't care to eat there. So Phyllis took her car home and Bob and I picked her up and we drove to Cherryvale to "Just Us". That's where we like to eat.
After we ate we came back home and I worked on my newsletters and Leslie and I also worked on the bulletin for Bobby's Celebration of Life service. It is scheduled for Thursday at 1:00.
This evening I ate my yogurt and then Bob came over to watch the news and 60 Minutes. After he left I took my bath and I want to watch "Race to the White House". Then Missy and I will go to bed.
