The funeral was a very pleasant one... short and to the point. My uncle and cousin made lovely speeches. One especially poignant line comes to mind from the entire ordeal - my uncle spoke in his eulogy that while my grandfather was a very tough man... he has managed in his death to bring our family closer together than it ever has been. And this is a very true statement. A lot of connections were re-made, and others strengthened. I know I will do my part to keep it going - blood is blood. And when it all comes down to it, it is your family who will always be there.
But for now, exhaustion. I think it will be an early bedtime for me.
Again, thank you all. Words cannot express my gratitude.
