Today we held a funeral for one of my uncles. Due to a miss communication my cousin and I were a little late. It was a touching affair with the old veterans and his fellow rural fire fighter brigade in attendance. To be honest I didn’t really know him that well, and I don’t really know much of my extended family beyond slight acquaintance; we share a family bond and meet at the occasional family when we attend, and make small talk. My uncles and aunts have a closer bond and of course they have a close bond with their own children but that is as far as it goes. We are have our own lives going on and most of us have little in common.
Well I hope my uncle and his brothers and son, and parents are all at peace. I can’t say that I believe in an afterlife but I truly hope that there is one.
Take Care Lou.
