Went to see my cousin...


Went up north to Mason City today for the funeral of a friend.  She went way too young.  50 years old.  Had a seizure on Sunday the 6th, died Wednesday the 9th.  Sad.  I will miss her.

She is inurned very close to where my cousin Tony is buried. 

Tony was in country two weeks and was two weeks shy of his 20th birthday.  He too, was a Grunt.  Everyone wants to be a Grunt.  Until it's time to do Grunt shit.  So the saying goes.  He was 5 years older than me. 

Anyway, Saying good-bye to Julie was sad. 

Happy Friday.

Yeah, not so happy, but peace to your life, brother.
And, a 'welcome home' to your cousin.
