There was a little old lady at the buffet whose younger friend or relative was helping to get her food dished up. I had to walk away because it so reminded me of Nannie.
When the bride's Grandfather toasted the new couple I almost lost it completely.
All evening all I could think about was how sad I was that Nannie will not be here for my brother's wedding. She was so very proud of him, she really liked his best beloved, and would have been thrilled to see them say their vows to each other - to see him start off his new life with the woman he loves. Nannie loved Scientist Genius Brother so very much.
I know she will be with us in spirit but I am selfish, I want her there for real. I want her back. I miss her so so very much.
My heart hurts.
