Today was my dad's funeral.
As far as funerals go, it was lovely.
My dad loved a good funeral, and I do believe that he would have been well pleased with his.
Tonight, THGGM and I drove to the cemetery.
He isn't buried in the same area as this mom and dad and two brothers.
Yes. There it is. In section 2A of the Grandville Cemetery.
I have quite a bit of processing to do. I had NO IDEA what this was going to be like. Sad, happy, relief, grief, extreme tiredness - to name a few of the emotions. Hard to pin them down, as they race through one behind another.
This is the devotional from Oswald Chambers book "My Utmost for His Highest".
It's the reading from the day my dad died.
THIS describes the kind of man my father is.

Again, thank you for all of your kind words in person, in comments and in emails. We have felt the prayers and the good wishes.
Now I'm going to go and have a good cry.
