mhy gramma's funeral was on my mom's birthday. i asked her how she wanted to "deal" with it. she really wanted the two events to be separate, but one of her friends in attendance had the restaurant bring her a birthday dessert.<quoted text>
What a crappy thing to do to your kid!
But... why SHOULD it get mentioned? I wouldn't think a fact like that is the kind of thing to broadcast.
we went home, took it easy for awhile, then had pizza and birthday cake. She said that gramma's last birthday gift was to bring her whole family together. and i really do think taht it was the last time that the whole lot of us were together.
