Out of Town Again
Due to a family emergency -- my father's brother just died on Thursday -- I'll be out of town and back in Akron for a couple days in the near future. More information once I find out when the service is. In the meantime, if you send me something over the weekend and I don't answer right away, that's why.
Edit: Cancel that. Since my uncle wanted to be cremated there's only going to be a viewing -- no church service. After consulting with my grandmother, Dad decided that I shouldn't spend the $120 or so on gas coming and going for a few hours of stuff.
Granted, I didn't see my uncle very often and so we weren't close, but it feels odd to not go given that I'm still relatively close by. What should I do here? Something tells me a fruit basket would be somewhere between retarded and lame; probably a mix of both.
