The Times, They Are A Changin'
Yesterday was my Great (in many ways) Uncle Harry’s memorial service. I’m not sure how I feel about memorial services, but the things that come with them are fantastic.

Further thoughts on being sued
The insurance company is fighting it. That’s always fun (and good for me).
Thoughts on getting sued
Seems like its not as big of a deal as I thought… well, that’s a good thing I guess. Lawyer Friend said it was fairly normal, and to drop off the letter to Insurance Friend.
