I put the new shoes on for the first time. They seem a tight fit.
I put the tie on
and look at the clock. It is time to say goodbye, to hope nothing is oozing out of my ear and down my fresh sparkling white collars. I reach for a cloth in the car and give it another wipe. I wait in the congregation queue for the family to appear and head on over to meet them.
Many hours later it was good to have seen turn out so large for two people whom always welcomed me, feed me well, particularly on a lot of Christmas’s, made me laugh on occasion but most importantly have left me with two great friends to continue life with.
And as sometimes wakes are, it was good to see everyone, catchup and all be together for a while once more. In God We Trust their safe keeping.
