Today was the funeral.

I am so proud of my cousins and my children. Not one of them was afraid to cry. This man has been a shining star in all our lives so it was hard to have to let go of him.

His brother wrote a poem about the two of them that softened everyone up and then the music while the curtains closed around his coffin made sure that everyone wept.

Even the UPS driver that collects the parcels they send out for their business was there.

I salute you Lord Admiral, you are locked in my memory forever.

It sounds like it was a proper send-off for him. Sending hugs.

What can I say? I'm still thinking about you and the family x
