|Vera with her catch on the Carolina Fishing Pier.|
She was respected and beloved by so many people who wanted to say goodbye to her in the proper setting...if it could have been arranged, I think this funeral procession would have also had side trips to Florida, Inland North Carolina, Washington DC, and Japan. But all goodbyes have to end sometime, and this one ended in Forest, Mississippi, amongst loving family members who have the powerful veil of the McMullan lineage glowing around them, and the spice, vinegar, and Southern love that movies are made of.
Thankfully, when I walked in and saw her at this Funeral Home, I saw that she had fully departed. She is flying in the stars for real now.
Today it ends. Tonight she is, as Husband said, "Twangling her toes with my Father again". She was sent lovingly on her journey with tributes by family members who told stories, prayed beautiful prayers, read from scriptures, and saluted her with the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen.
Godspeed, Vera. You were something else.
