Have you ever been to a funeral that wasn't 'lovely'?
IMO, like most funerals, this one was awful.
Not many people there. Just family and a couple of others. Nenor outlived her generation. Andrew did the service. He did a good job. I prayed.
Child #2 cried right through it. He does empathy. He didn't know Nenor well, but understood that she was Pop's mum and my grandmother. Child #1 and #3* cried at the end - like most of us.
My heart is heavy. It's the end of an era.
* I forget that our kids have done a lot of funerals in their short lives. Two children that they knew (horrible, horrible, horrible), 2 great grandparents (before this), several old people from church. Interestingly, this was my older sister's first funeral ever.
