- Spoke to mother-in-law
re: funeral arrangements for her mother who died yesterday in her mid 80s.
I'm a "non-teaching classroom assistant" in a primary
school, working with mainly 8 year olds. Very often I help with class work
but this week I was painting wall boards for work to be displayed. This morning's
board was yellow and I ended up with speckles of yellow gloss paint on my
hands and arms - which I was very conscious of as I was going to a funeral
that afternoon! Trinity Church was cold and it was all very sad, with the
loss of a very dear lady. She was 81 when she died which in some ways was
a good age, but it felt too soon. Her son read two poems and we sang hymns
and thought about all the happy memories of her. She
was going to Aberystwyth to be cremated and it was lovely to think of the
journey in the sun, ending up by the sea.
Holy Trinity Church,
- Mynd i angladd fy nghefnder yng Nghapel y
Graig efo Nora, fy ngwraig, a'm chwaer, Carwen.
- Get changed into 'funeral
frock'. Find husband's black tie. Brother-in-law arrives. Off in car to Shrewsbury
Crematorium for 3.20pm. Meet up with 60 relatives. We are at the funeral of
one of my husband's aunts, aged 87. Lovely service, wonderful singing. "Calan
Lan" raised the roof. Back to Sweeney Hall Hotel for the funeral tea.
Lovely to see the family.
- I have a funeral to attend. Can't find space
to park in time, due to traffic jam caused by lorries unloading, so miss funeral.
Aeth eraill i ymweld â beddau.
- I went to the cemetery by car with my son
and brother who had come from Swansea and Bishops Castle. They cut the grass
all around the ten family graves and I washed and polished the headstones
and put on lovely artificial flowers and leaves.
- My brother who I haven't seen for two years
is coming to see us tomorrow. They've spent a week at their caravan and coming
probably to visit Mom and Dad's grave.
