An aspiring journalist tackles his most personal assignment

When I visited my grandfather in a St. Louis hospital in May of last year, I arrived at his bedside having received instructions from him to bring three things: a pen, a notebook and an envelope from Bopp Chapel, the local funeral home.The instructions came without emotion ? even matter-of-factly ? reflecting a characteristic stoicism that runs in certain parts of the family.
