We started the day by visiting my grandparent’s grave, because my Uncle and his wife, who recently came from the home country and who could not come for my grandparent’s funerals, have not yet been able to visit… (and from what I’ve been hearing, lights were going off and on, and all sorts of other interesting things were happening at my Mom’s house). 😉

It was interesting how my Uncle was able to find my grandparent’s grave so easily. His legs literally stopped right in front of it, and he looked down and there it was. My Aunt thinks it was freaky.

On the way to Grand-Aunt Jeannie‘s funeral, I heard “Safe And Sound” by Capital Cities. I was glad to hear it. It’s one of two songs that really make things better for me. I knew it was going to be a good day.


The funeral was short and sweet in Colma, where the population of the dead outnumbers the population of the living.

I am grateful to be a part of your send off, Grand-Aunt Jeannie. May you rest in peace.
