I just spoke to our attorney's office and they are okay with me coming to sign the paperwork tonight for both closings, so it looks like I won't have to be there Thursday after all. I booked a flight for first thing Thursday morning that gets me to Boston at 8am. The funeral is at 11am about an hour away so I should be able to make it in time.
I am still worried that something is going to go wrong at closing though. Is this a bad idea? DH said go, he can handle it. But I still worry!
