In Memory of Grandma

This has been a strange, fun, unusual and sad trip back home. While most of the days have been fun, today was a sad day. When I had arrived here at the Long Beach airport last week I had heard that my dad's mom had passed away. Today was the funeral. I was asked to play the piano before, after and some during the funeral. It is a sad thing when a parent is gone. Now both of my dad's parents have crossed the great divide. Now it is just he and his sister. It was a nice service. I will say that it really does not hit you until you look inside the casket and see the person yourself. Many of us went back to my dad's sister for a reception. As I said, a strange trip back home.
