Early this morning Walker's Grandmother died. She had a heart attack two days ago. There will be no funeral and we are not supposed to go down to Arizona right now.
My Grumpy also insisted on no funeral, and I don't think I approve of that. It leaves all the people who know you but aren't your immediate next of kin with no outlet for their grief. I think there is something therapeutic about missing someone in a group of people who also miss them. I think I will have to plan out a funeral for me so that if I die, no one has to figure where and what food and all that inconvenient stuff, but people can still get together to miss me.
