My grandfather passed away on the weekend, so I will be making a hasty trip across the country to attend his funeral. I really wish that I had been able to make the trip back while he was still alive, to see him once more at least. I suppose this is a lesson for me to learn. If anything, I suppose it is a small mercy that I did not see him while his health was so poor. My memories of him will always be fun and silly, which is just the way I want to remember my grandfather.
Because the trip is last minute, I will be flying solo. It is amazing to me that airfare from here to NS is more expensive than airfare from here to Germany. I'll try to post updates if possible, but I can't make any guarantees about net access while visiting relatives who don't own computers.
