For any comments on Mass, Twitter, the price of tea in China...
My grandfather died earlier today, so my commentary will probably be light for a few days.
Here's the obit in the local paper. The link should be good for at least a couple of months.
I'm guessing this picture is about two years old. It would have been nice if somebody had combed his hair before they snapped the shot, but it's an accurate reflection of his state of self-awareness at the time.
It's amazing what can go wrong even with a pre-planned mortuary service. I'll just leave it at that. And the pastor was incommunicado for two days, which held up the publishing of the obituary since we couldn't officially confirm the use of the church until last evening.
