A Tanner Funeral
On the day of Pam Tanner's funeral, D.J. was in her room just sitting on her bed. She was in shock over hearing that her mother died a couple days ago but was yet numb. Suddenly, the realization of her mother's death hit hard. She buried her face in her pillow and broke down completely.
Just then, the door opened and Stephanie walked over to D.J. and put a hand on her shoulder. D.J. looked up and her face was soaked.
"You OK?" Stephanie asked with concern.
"I was hit with the realization that we'll never see Mom again," D.J. said, breaking down completely again.
D.J. and Stephanie wrapped their arms around each other. They stayed in that position for a long time.
Downstairs, the doorbell rang and Danny Tanner went to answer it. He opened the door and let his brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis, and his best friend, Joey Gladstone, in the house. The three of them threw their arms around each other and squeezed tightly. Then they released each other.
"How are you holding up?" Joey asked with concern.
"I feel that my world is crashing down on me," Danny said.
"Pam was very important to me since she was my sister so I feel the same way you do," Jesse said with sympathy.
Danny spotted his daughters coming down from upstairs. Stephanie raced over to Danny and D.J. came down carefully carrying Michelle.
"Daddy, where did Mommy go when she died?" Stephanie asked with curiosity.
"Let's just say she's here in this room right now but we can't see her," Danny said.
"Why can't we see her?"
"Because, uh, she's, uh, gone."
"We should get to the funeral service," Joey said.
"All right, everybody in the car!" Jesse called.
Everyone gathered their things. Then they left the house.
Danny, Joey, Jesse, D.J., Stephanie, Michelle, and a whole bunch of family and friends were sitting in a church. Since a memorial service was taking place, everyone was wearing dark colors.
The casket was located at the front of the church and condolences were given earlier. The minister entered the church area and stepped up to the podium.
The minister went into a long speech about the life of Pam Tanner and how tragic it was that her life was cut short by a drunk driver. When he was done, he stepped down from the podium and Danny went up there to give the eulogy.
Danny talked about how he met Pam, their dating life, eloping, and how Jesse reacted when he found out. When he mentioned the accident, he had to take deep breaths so he could stay calm enough to finish out the eulogy.
At the end of the memorial service, everyone slowly filed out of the church. Then everyone got into their cars and drove away from the church.
Half an hour later, everyone was in the cemetery. The pallbearers were lowering Pam Tanner's casket into the ground.
The minister went into a long funeral speech. During the speech, everyone took turns throwing flowers into the grave.
"Rest in peace, Pamela Tanner," the minister concluded.
The mourners left the gravesite walking very slowly towards their cars. Then the gravediggers came and covered the open grave.
Later on that day, after the funeral service, Danny was sitting on the living room sofa with Michelle sleeping in his arms. Just then, D.J. and Stephanie entered the room.
"What are we going to do without Mom?" D.J. asked.
"I called my mother and she agreed to move in for a while," Danny replied.
"Grandma's going to move in here?" Stephanie asked.
"Just until Uncle Jesse and Joey are able to whenever that is," Danny said.
"That's great news," D.J. said happily.
"Yay, Grandma's moving in!" Stephanie exclaimed while spinning around the room.
Danny smiled at his daughters. Even though they could never replace their mother, they had their own light in his life.
