    He passed last November and my grandma had him cremated, and we had a memorial on his birthday in February.

    I'm excited. Which is probably weird to say about a funeral...but I already did my mourning. I've never been to a military funeral, and my grandpa was a decorated veteran of WWII (Okinawa). So yeah I'm excited. And proud, too, that I'll get to see my grandpa's life and his service to this country honored and remembered.

    The first shot is jarring.

    Maybe you'll get a number and go out on a date. Funerals are excellent places to meet people. Just make sure they're not related to you.

    My dad had a military funeral. His stupid 30 something year old wife got his flag.

    Anyway, sorry for your loss.

    I've liked Green Day since the early 90's. but I don't really like that song..Very thread appropriate though

    I went to a Family Reunion and it was weird staring at good looking people you've never seen and then you realize it's your cousins' kids.

    Because the next day would be much better.

    Seriously, though, I'm glad it will be more of a celebration for you. It's nice to have the chance to reminisce without all the emotional pain.
