Back again

I'm back again to Melbourne. Spent 3 days up in Brisbane to be with my relatives in their time of bereavement. It was moving to see their family gather together to honor their father/grandfather. I was especially touched by my aunt's attention to her mother. She would help her change, warm her legs with tiger balm oil. Amazing.

The grandchildren cried at the funeral. I envied them. He was very close to them. I hardly knew my grandfather; I wouldn't describe him as friendly or kind.
