The funeral went two-and-a-half hours, then to the cemetery and back. The family is still eating at the church, almost 6 hours later. It was a long day for C and everyone else, but it was all good. This was a good kid, a young man who had a chance. His parents did what all of us who love young adults do: they prayed that he would survive his foolishness and outgrow it--like all the rest of us did. But he didn't. So sad.
