The deed is done; Yesterday I buried my father. Chamorro funerals are the most excruciating experience that I have ever heard of. I'll explain what I mean once I have a chance to gather my thoughts and put them down on paper.
I slept for 13 hours last night. I fell asleep at 7 PM and didn't wake up until Abraham's baby started making a lot of noise around 8 AM. I can't remember the last time I slept so long. I felt well rested and relieved when I woke up. The painful part is over. I can go swimming now. All we have to do is finish up a few more days of praying.
