Sad/happy news

My friends' dad died. Early this morning. It is sad because everyone will miss him so, but happy because he was not even close to having any fun anymore. He didn't suffer long, and not at all at the end. He asked to be cremated and for his funeral to be on a Saturday, at least one week from the day he died, so that everyone would be able to come without upsetting their lives too much. That's the kind of guy he was. It also gives his family time to regroup and to plan the kind of sendoff they want to give him. This way they have more than a week to plan a really special bash, and get everything exactly as they want it. I think that's really great, and I plan to incorporate it into my funereal plans.
