Funeral day

Funny things, funerals. One minute you’re crying. The next you’re hugging someone you haven’t seen for years and having a good old laugh. Two minutes later you’re crying again. So many emotions in such a short space of time. No wonder we all feel a bit shell shocked and tired.

As funerals go it was a nice one. Boofuls delivered a eulogy and delivered it beautifully. There wasn’t a dry eye in the church, then they expected us to sing!

The people who live close enough have set off in their journey’s home. Leaving us feeling relieved we don’t see them too often.

We’ll set off home tomorrow and get ready to repeat the whole exercise again next week.

  1. I’m sorry you’re going through such a tough time at the moment. You are right about the combination of tears and laughs at the funeral though – it’s hard not to be pleased to see people you haven’t seen for years.

    1. It is an odd thing but I quite enjoy funerals for that very reason. Why don’t we just get together for the sake of it instead? It’s a far better idea than waiting till someone drops dead.
