Me - "we have to go to a celebration of life event later for Great Grampa"
K- "is that the Grampa who died?"
Me - "yes"
K- "what is a ceremony"
Me - "it isn't a ceremony, it's a celebration of life. Basically a get together with food and stuff to remember Great Grampa. It was his birthday this month to, he died before his birthday came"
K- "I think it makes more sense to do this after his funeral."
Me - "I suppose, but no not really. This is different. Besides we did have a little gathering after Great Grampa's funeral, remember?"
K- "yeah. Well if it is a celebration for him, shouldn't he be there? It's pretty sad he is dead and can't be there"
Me - .......
K- "That's okay he will be there in spirit and he is in spirit above me right now."
Me - "That's right buddy, Great Grampa will be there in spirit."
