I wonder if they will revert back t the original burial plans given his dementia. My dad died 11 days ago so I quite literally feel their pain. So sad, especially for the grandkids. He wasn't a saint, and was actually quite a pain in many respects, but he was part of a family regardless and having just lost such a big part of my own only a week ago, I feel so sad for them.
