Cousins funeral

The funeral all went off ok. We’re home now. It was a lovely day. Very long day though.
Our cousin got a fantastic send off. She was cremated. But first there was a church service. The service was beautiful. Her daughter read a piece and it made me cry it was so beautiful.
She came to the church in a carriage, with two horses pulling it, her body was in a glass carriage, and a black and a white horse pulled it.
Her mom and dad were devastated. So, so devastated. Her son whose in prison was there, but he was handcuffed to a guard. I still got to hug him though.
The music in the church was lovely. And also at the crematorium. It was really lovely. Her family put flowers on her coffin, and as they did that a song played in the background.
We all cried buckets of tears. It was just so sad.
After the funeral was finished we went back to a nice hall and ate some food and had drinks. Then we all came back to our aunts house. The family have just all gone home a few minutes ago.
I’m so glad everything went off ok. At the afters alisons daughter jade let balloons go, with messages from her grandkids pinned on to them. More tears were shed then but it was just a really sweet thing for her daughter jade to do for her.
Her mom and dad are devastated, her mom was begging them not to close the curtains in the crematorium, they didnt as jade had requested them not to, but her mom didnt know that, and she got herself in a terrible state because she didnt want Alison to be taken away to be burned.
It has been an incredibly sad day. But she had a nice turnout, a nice send off, and everything went smoothly.
And thats all any of us could have asked for.

  1. Oh, that must have been so very sad, and I’m so so sorry for your cousin’s parents. It’s always so tragic for parents when their child dies, no matter what age. I’m glad though that it went smoothly and wasn’t too hard on you.
