Coat of many colors

Gramma's funeral was short and sweet. I started it off with the obit reading. Her grandson Stone-Cold started a brief moment where friends and family said some words about her. The Bossman wrapped it up with a brief message.

Somewhere at the start they played a recording of Gramma's favorite song, which was something about a coat of many colors by Dolly Parton. I never heard the song before, but it was basically a song about community. Ie: different pieces of colored cloth sewed together to make a whole. Off the cuff, The Bossman worked that song's meaning into his brief message.

Gramma: she'll be missed. I am thankful for the Sanfords and their willingness to include Agent Wife and I in their family...always having us join in on birthday, weekend BBQs, Christmas gatherings, etc.
