A Nice Goodbye

Not every post that I write this year will follow suggestions by The Daily Post. Nor will every one of them try to be funny.

Today’s is short, because we got up this morning and drove through the ice and snow to Trim, Co Meath, to go to a funeral.

Our sister-in-law’s mother has died. Our sister-in-law, Mrs Tin’s brother’s wife, is a sweet, gentle girl and her mum was just the same.

We’re just home. The service was lovely and, like the funerals of most good people, it was a good day. I know that sounds odd, but people remembered her, people supported each other, people laughed a lot.

It was a nice goodbye.
