Just before Christmas we drove down to southern california for Uncle Gabe's Memorial. It took place at the Lake Shrine Temple in Pacific Palisades and they said it used to be a movie set. I believe them.
Once it became clear that the service was going to be standing room only I opted to give up our seats for some of Gabe's relatives and headed outside with Molly. A few other little ones joined us in our exploration of the grounds.

After the service we headed up to Annie's house (Gabe's aunt and adopted mother). Molly immediately made herself at home and had a blast bossing all the adults around as she was the only little one there. She also made fast friends with a little doggie named Mouse.
At first I was hesitant to bring Molly along because I was concerned about her making it through the service. Then I thought people that haven't seen N in years would want to meet her. I am really glad she came along because several people came up to me before we left and told me she was a welcome distraction and it was good to laugh after a week of non-stop crying.
