It's okay, Sush, about the funeral, that is. He was 82 and had a good life. It was hard for Paul, though, as he had so much death around him during his childhood -- his dad died right in front of him when Paul was 12 -- that funerals bring back 'way too many painful memories. I was able to comfort him, but I wish some day he'd work out some of that really difficult stuff somehow.
