The Suit

Sept. 1981
I just got done proposing to my x- wife, a friend finds me and lets me know that my parents wanted me that my Grandfather had just died.
The following day, Saturday I do believe, I went into town to buy my first suit, a blue 3 piece suit with a black clip on tie and a white shirt, they fitted the suit for me.
Come Monday after noon I walked into the funeral palor to pay my last respects to my Grandfather , seen my Grandmother with a funny stare in her eyes , gave her a kiss and went up to see my GrandFather and damn near lost my sanity.
You see my Grandfathers burial suit was the same suit I picked for myself, right down to the shoes, it was as if I was veiwing my own body!
I had never seen the suit before and never ever saw my Grandfather for the most part dressed up especially in
A suit.
It still gives me the heebie jeebies thinking about it!

And as always, thanks for listening!
