My neighbors "burial" was today at Arlington Cemetary in the Coloumbarium (her husand ashes are there). Actually he was at Iwo Jima. Anyway, they really do move you through at a clip, but they have so many funerals a day. They do a good job. It really is unnerving seeing those acres and acres of headstones. Saw a horse-drawn cortege. That's really impressive.

There was a bagpiper playing at the end. I think the family brought him.

The weather was appropriately gloomy, foggy even. Unusual for the DC area.

arrete - that's over, thank goodness. I hope the daughter, especially, finds closure. She has grieved pretty hard.
