The Funeral

My grandpa's funeral was last Tuesday. It was a beautiful tribute to a great man. My dad gave a biographical sketch along with sharing some of our memories of him. My Uncle Chris read a fable he had written about my grandpa and grandma. And some of his good friends also spoke.
My grandma saying her last goodbye.
The whole Ririe clan. The timing worked out well so Diana and Jason got to say goodbye before he died and then be at the funeral during their visit.
His obituary ran on Sunday and then again on Tuesday because they accidentally had the wrong photo the first time. We all looked at it and said, "That's not my grandpa!" A little bit of humor during a hard time.

I miss you Daddy, but I'm glad you don't have to suffer anymore!
