We buried my grandpa today. It was a hard day, undeniably-- but his services were attended by many of his parishioners, family and friends. I saw many extended family members- some of them I'd seen in January when my great uncle died but others I didn't even remember since it had been 20+ years!
The viewing and funeral went well- all 9 grandchildren sang for the funeral, one brother & two cousins were pall bearers...Lily and I had to place a few items on Grandpa's casket and that's when I lost it. Seeing all the pictures of him from over the years was hard too- and I'm pretty sure it's going to hit me more as time goes by since the end was just so fast.
We're heading back West tomorrow, back to "normal" life for a few days. I'll have just five days of school left before Christmas break-- how is that possible?
I hope you all had a great week- I'm all mixed up on what day it even is!!! Miss you all, but hoping to get back into reading blogs someday, maybe soon? ;)
