Arrangements have been made. Although my aunt really didn't want a service, my mom has decided to go against her wishes just this once. All of the people that she affected seem to be coming out of the woodwork. Her impact was far-reaching. WLNS in Lansing even mentioned her death during their news Tuesday. The memorial service is going to be Friday morning at the Michigan State University chapel.
I'm supposed to speak.
Given the chance, I could probably get up there and talk for a few hours. I'm more worried that I'll just babble instead and bore the living hell out of everyone in attendance. My aunt was a fantastic public speaker... and I want to do her right by saying the right things in the right way.
