The memorial service was today. I found a really good flight/hotel/rental car deal, so I was able to go; I'm glad I could.

A few weeks ago I said I would put together a list of all the memorial posts I could find. Here is that list. If you know of other posts that should be included, please comment here and I'll add them. If you'd like a post of yours removed from this list, you can either comment here or send me a message through Dreamwidth or Livejournal, and I'll remove it.

Edited on 12/11 to add: There's a song by Carol Montag that came to mind a couple of times yesterday. Carol is a friend of a friend of my family, and did a house concert at their house when I was a teenager. The song is "Uncle John," and part of it goes "Uncle John I never knew you well, but you bring us all together." Some of us knew Abby better than others--I knew her well enough to miss her, but not as well as many people there--but she brought us all together yesterday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E28OjB63Yrs
