Being an expressive type, and being one seeking ease from pain, I did it my way for Eric's funeral. I sat neither stoically as the song Don't Cry Out Loud suggests, nor did I sob noisily as expected. Instead, I wrote lyrics set to music composed by a cousin. During Eric's memorial service, a tape recording of my singing this tribute was played.
Cara composed and played this final track. It remains untitled but is uplifting nonetheless.
