As Anastaisa as noted -- it's important to have a funeral... and we're having one, just not while I'll be in town.
But -- I've been deeply involved in finding the place, figuring out the food and all the other details -- which I'm sure my family will enjoy.
Instead, I'll be going to visit one of Grandpa's younger sisters in the southern part of BNState. We don't think she should be alone on the day of her last surviving brother's funeral.
I have to say, I'm ready to come come home... the next cousin down (Aunt S's older child) is here. She's competent and can keep track of Mom and Aunt S.... they'll be in good hands when I leave. Even the thought of a ton of snow in BN state doesn't keep me from getting home sick...
Florida is nice, but -- enough is enough.
