Yes! This would be a terrible under regular circumstances, but this situation has got to make it 100 times worse.

The service was short, but so hard. I kept staring at the coffin (didn’t want to see her). All graveside. My ex/our good friend and his wife who has become a good friend were there. The Rabbi got sick in southern CA and ended up having to stay longer than planned, so the cantor did the service ( which was fine, I like her and iffy on him). She was supposed to sing, “Wind Beneath My Wings” which was Rebecca’s favorite song. Unfortunately, the rules changed and she is no longer allowed. She tried to play it but the internet had issues. She did read it. I gave a very short speech about how ironically growing up, I hated being a twin and sharing. I always wanted to be independent, I would make her get dressed first so we wouldn’t wear the same outfit. Yet as adults, I wish I could be more like her-she knew from at least High School she wanted to be a teacher ( almost 30 years after High School, I still don’t know what I want to be). She is the one who stayed in touch with friends and family. She may have been overbearing at times, but she has true friends.

The positive is I spoke with my High School Geometry teacher (Rebecca loved her and they shared a mutual love for animals) and reconnected with a childhood friend. She and Rebecca were best friends as kids through college. Then according to the friend Rebecca wanted more than the friend could give. They hadn’t spoken in years. We are going to attempt to stay somewhat in touch. At least through e-mail.

I hope this teaches me/motivates me to be better about staying connected to people.

I'm tearing up reading your update. Your speech sounds heartfelt and amazing. I hope you are good about keeping up with the people you've regained touch with. It sounds like a meaningful experience. I'm so sad and miss Rebecca, and I know you are feeling 10,000 times more than that.

Thanks for sharing your experience. We were all with you in spirit.
