My Grandmother's Funeral

Up before 5 a.m., I caught a 7 a.m. flight from Sacramento to Ontario. I rented a car and drove to the La Verne Cemetery for my maternal grandmother's funeral. After the graveside service, my sisters and I visited our mother who is in a skilled nursing facility in Glendora.

From there, we drove to the home of one of my uncles in San Dimas. He and his wife hosted a lunch for everyone after the service. In addition to my two sisters and I, the group include my two uncles and their wives [Spencer, Sally, Rod and Carol], five first cousins [Kathy, Ray, Jill, Jana and Judy], my first cousin's children [seven kids] and three or four other friends of the family.

I eventually headed back to the airport and took a 3:45 p.m. flight back to Sacramento. Sharon, Jack and I ended the day having dinner at Mikuni's in Elk Grove.
