Back home again

The hardest part of my uncle's funeral was that the service took place in the same chapel where we said goodbye to my father less than two years ago, even the flowers were put out in exactly the same spot in the garden the following day. It was like burying both my uncle and my father for a second time. The reception afterwards was a slightly more pleasant event, since I met cousins and others I had not seen for a long time.

So sorry to hear about your uncle (and your father) - I can see why this was a very emotional trip for you. My parents are getting on in age and I know I'll be making some sad journeys some time in the future as well.
