Shopping Trip.

Today's trip was the most depressing I've had to do for a while.  Purchasing Rye a pair of trousers and collared t'shirt suitable for a funeral, and a pair of shoes for myself.

The funeral is on Wednesday, I'm driving up on Tuesday with a couple of friends and we're staying over at my nephew's home, then come back Wednesday after the funeral.

Very flat since finding out the date - I suppose it's becoming more and more real.  I haven't laid eyes on Peter for years and years, so his death seems a bit unreal, well come Wednesday it will be very real indeed.

Have I mentioned how much I hate funerals?

a sad trip indeed. i had to scroll down some to work out who Peter was. Your uncle?

it is sad to see a family diminish. but you are carrying on the family with your children.

hoping peace for you for the day.

Thanks Mon.
Peter was my brother, once upon a time we were very close indeed. Sigh.
