Funeral

Well closure came today with Denis's funeral. He had a full catholic requiem mass  then burial then back to the church hall for a mini wake.It helped that it took place on a bright sunny day. I expected mum to be upset but it seems that she has come to terms with losing her two surviving siblings within a few months. No tears no sombreness ust a reasonably happy day (as happy as such a day could be) celebrating the life of a kind and gentle man.

Now to sort out his financial affairs. This is going to be a pain in the arse.

Sounds like you gave him a good send-off.

It's good to know your mum was okay. Losing someone you love is very hard.

Good luck with the details. Have you noticed yet it takes much longer to see someone out than when arrives?
