Pope's Cousin: "Sad To Watch"

Pope's cousin says funeral was "beautiful" and "sad to watch"

Pope John Paul's 81-year-old cousin says it was "beautiful" and yet "really sad to watch" all at the same time.

Bronislaw Wojtyla, he pope's cousin on his father's side, had to watch the funeral for one of his closest living relatives from his home in Poland. Wojtyla only walks with crutches, but says that his daughter and grandchildren were at the Vatican today.

The pope sent his cousin a letter late in March, the last written communication the man says he had with the pontiff. Wojtyla says the letter shows the pope "must have known he was dying."
