Great-Grandad Moore

M's great-grandad Moore passed away last Monday morning, 2nd July after being sick for a long time (9 years since his first stroke). M and I spent the day with her MorMor, Great-Grandma Moore and Great-Uncle Harry, to cheer them all up, especially Great-Grandma. The rest of our week was normal, and GG's funeral was on Friday afternoon at Corpus Christi at Nundah. The priest from that parish, Fr John, has been visiting GG in his nursing home for years, so the family decided that would be an appropriate place for the mass. M was really good through the service, apart from wanting to add to her Great-Uncle Ian's eulogy with her own ... we quickly plugged her up with a dummy, as we were hoping she might doze off. M dozed off in the car on the way to the cemetary and slept through the internment. At the end of the day, we had some drinks and nibblies at a function room at the retirement complex Great-Grandma is living in. Lots of family, but only about two people told me that they hadn't "see you since you were *this* high". ;) M behaved really well, had lots of cuddles, and a bit of crawling time in a corner out of the way of adult feet.
