My Grandfather died last week, at the age of 89. We're just back from Arizona, where we attended the memorial service.

He'd been very sick for a few weeks now -- his body couldn't really recover from an emergency surgery they had to do last month.

He lived a good and full life, and it was wonderful to see at the service how many people loved him.

My whole life he's lived on the other side of the country, so it's not like this is going to change my day-to-day life, but he's always been ... around. It's going to take some time for me to really process this, I think.

The obituary (written by my aunt) is here...I don't mind breaking the semi-anonymity of this journal for that. I think it's very well done, and shows what a full life he had.

Goodbye, Grandpa. I love you.
