It was a million times awesomer than that!
Kali sat by him at dinner (no big deal)
We sang for him
He delivered a comforting, uplifting, edifying, beautiful sermon that spoke peace to my soul in such amounts I can't really use written language to explain it
He spent about 15 seconds on me of all people, hugging me, thanking me, and telling me his grandchildren are enjoying my tennis text book
he told Kali he wanted us to sing that at his funeral
And he hugged me.
The tenderest, mercifulest mercy I could have asked for.
