My friend's 21 year old grandson committed suicide. He just got out of the Army recently.
I'll be signing off in a little while and won't be back until tomorrow evening.
This is the first funeral for me since losing my wife almost a year and a half ago, I dread.

My Condolences.

I hope your friend's grandson receives a Military Funeral Honors ceremony. It has been my honor to sound Taps, at over 350 ceremonies since 2008.

she is a very sweet lady, broke my heart seeing her hurt.

The Army sent 6 soldiers led by a Captain. Taps was recorded but choked me up none the less.
The flag was folded and presented sharply.

He was a very popular young man, they held the service in the H.S. gymnasium, huge crowd.
Interment was immediate family only.

I hope that's the next to last funeral I have to attend, I don't like having to drive :)

Computer mapping said it was three and a half hour trip, nope. It was three hours fifty some so that was almost eight hours on the road, ugh!
