I've never been good at funerals, I miss the person, but the funeral to me is, while intended to be a solemn occasion, is something that I feel
should be more of a memorial party.
Like when someone retires.
When my grandfather died, while I loved the man, I didn't really mourn at his funeral. He was a great man, and I don't think he would have wanted
people to cry at his dispense.
So, I managed to cheer up my various younger relatives, and got veryone laughing, talking about our grandfather, the good times, and what we'd miss
Over all, though, we we were happy to know him.
