Grandpa's Funeral

This day came and went so quickly. Most of the family has been together at my parent's house since Sunday. The service was held at Grandma and Grandpa's church and then there were a few more words at the graveside.  Jayme sang so beautifully at both settings. Grandpa's favorite hymn was There's Room at the Cross for Me. She also sang Amazing Grace and The Battle Hymn of the Republic. There were supposed to be thunderstorms throughout the day, but the clouds cleared while we stood at the grave and a most beautiful September sky peaked through. The rain came later when we were all inside relaxing. There's just something about rain that makes a funeral day so much harder to get through.
The church provided a delicious, comforting meal for the family and then we gathered again at Mom and Dad's. The out-of-towners are traveling again in the morning except for Jayme who leaves on Thursday.
