Some things to be (kind of) happy about

My Dad returned from Illinois tonight, and while I haven't discussed Grandpa's passing with him at length, he seems to be at peace with it. He apparently didn't suffer much pain in his last few days, and he was able to go in his own home, instead of in some hospital stuffed full of plastic tubes. Also, his mind hadn't deteriorated, which is something that can be terrible, from what I understand after hearing other people's stories about the end of their elderly family members' lives.

We're all still going to miss him terribly, but it could have been much, much worse.
