We buried my brother yesterday

The same church he was married in, nearly 25 years ago. I don’t remember much of anything from the entire day. There was a High Church service, complete with ‘bells and smells’, as my brother had planned. A choir and eulogies from best friends, his son and his wife. I did a reading.

And these two songs were sung:

 

 

 

We donated his corneas and we burnt his body and now we contemplate the hole in our lives that will never, ever be filled.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
