Maria and I are going to the funeral of her Uncle Bob today at Fort Snelling National Cemetary. He'll be having the 21 gun salute at the burial which I'm sure will bring back memories of when my grandpa was buried. I remember crying at that part of the ceremony, and I just hope I don't lose it today.

We went to Bob's wake last night which was subdued, but nice. He had already been cremated and his remains were in an old jewelry box that he loved. Since I didn't know Bob very well it was nice to see all of the pictures that they had up around the funeral home of him when he was younger, with his kids, etc. It really helped him to come alive and be more of a real person to me. God rest your soul Bob, we'll see you in heaven!
