Next we visited some friends in Normal, IL. Leslie’s mother had died early in the morning of the day we arrived. She spent much of the day with her family but we had a good visit in the late afternoon and over dinner that evening. We drove by the cemetery where her mother would be buried and she talked quite a lot about her so I think it was therapeutic. Spent the night for the first time in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Not bad although I did not feel too safe.
