apparently, there will be no eulogy - the church does not allow them. Same church as my grandmother where I was allowed to say a eulogy but now there's new clergy so no - they won't allow it. Perhaps I suggested, they should just bury everyone together on the same day since there will be nothing personal about the funerals. I'm pissed.....and of course, there's nothing I can do which does not sit well with a personality like mine.

I started a new sock last night - a nice self striping by Biscotte et cie but nothing is really working for me at the moment. I feel like I can't get comfortable - not watching tv, not knitting, not reading - I'm just so restless.

If he is being buried, have the eulogy at the grave. Even if it can't be now (too cold), you can have a small service in the Spring. It may not be what you envisioned, but it will allow you to have your tribute to your Grandpa. It's a shame about the clergy.

I am so sorry for your loss, Connie. No wonder that you cannot settle, you must be feeling rather emotional about the funeral on top of the turmoil of losing a loved one. The church clergy sounds rather rigid, and is not being very supportive for your family - which is such a shame as that is a role that it is meant to fulfill. I hope that you find that opportunity to share your intended eulogy with your friends and family that day, even if not at the official service.
Take care.
