In a way I am torn up beacuse I will miss saying a last god bye to pop pop, but I know in 4 weeks I will be in the UK to be there for my Grandmother(nan nan), and make sure she is holding up. Although dissapointe greatly, there is a strange solice in knowing I will be there, and the added presures of dealing with the Goverment are over or now. Very Stressful in an already stressfull situation.

So, thanks all for all the kind words and thoughts.
I am so sorry for the loss of your pop pop. Your nan nan must be devastated after so many years of marriage. How many people these days can say they were married that long? Not many! I haven't traveled on an airline after 9/11, but I do know they have strict rules. Just when you need to travel, you find all these changes which makes it impossible for you to attend pop pop's funeral, but at least you will be there in the UK in four weeks, at a time when your nan nan will need you, as well as the rest of your family there.

So sorry for your loss. At least your grandparents shared a good long life together. My prayers are with you and your family.

Thinking of you and your family, Tattrat. Sorry to hear of all the bureaucracy getting in the way.
