Funeral time

My grandfather (dad's dad) passed late Saturday night and his funeral was yesterday. He was born and died in the same room (89 years apart) on the ranch in Tygee (eastern Caribou county, Idaho). It was a melacholy experience, of course, to gather with family to celebrate his life. He'd been ill (the dreaded "C" word) and was in pain much of the last month (particularly the last 2 weeks). He lived a full, rich life. He left a tremendous legacy. He'll be missed, but I think most of the family is glad that he's out of pain and that his passing was peaceful. We mourn for Grandma now.

More soon, after I get some pictures from Uncle Kirk.

I am sorry to hear about your Grandfather. We are praying for you and your family.

I'm still waiting for Uncle Kirk to send the promised pictures. Maybe I'll jog his memory.
