This has been, apparently, the year that I go to Missouri for deaths and funerals.
It started back in January, when my very good friend, Pat, died much too soon in St. Louis - Sister Death Is at the Door.
Then in July, my grandmother passed away in Independence -Goodbye, Grandma
And now, this past week, my aunt Linda (my father's brother's wife) passed away in Farmington. My father, my brother, Brad, and I drove down for her funeral today.
I am seriously beginning to mistrust the state of Missouri.
