A Beautiful Day

Yesterday we buried my Gandpa. The forcast called for rain most of the day so we packed along our umbellas and planed for a sad and nasty rainy day. It was nothing like that. We woke up to the sun shining and fresh air blowing through the windows. I got dressed and still was preparing for a nasty day to come but it didn't. We went to the funeral home and had a good cry and said our goodbye's and walked outside to get into our cars to take Grandpa to the church and the sun was still beautiful even though it wasn't suppose to be. We went into the church and gave Grandpa to God and did our best to let go and listened to Ave maria sung to Grandpa and it was sung beautifully (not as good as Grandpa but it is hard to top that mans voice). As we walked out of the church i put on my sunglasses and let the sun hit me. Grandpa wasn't going to let it rain today until he was buried and he ment it. LOL. We went to the burial and the Full Military Honors was such an honor for my Grandpa. We all cryed and and said our goodbyes one more time and then went on to celebrate his life and the sun still shined all day until about 6 oclock and then it all hit and it hit hard the wind was strong and the lighting was beautiful I believe that was Grandpas way of letting us know he made it and is happy with grandma. He put on quite a show last night.
