Goodbye.

Myles’ brother left his house for the last time today.

Long steps, hat off, the funeral director bows his head. The hearse leaves the house slowly, slowly down the steep hill to a small ceremony of fifteen at the crematorium. There can be no more.

The escort of twenty Welsh Water vans and the children in their rugby shirts waving from the sunny streets.

Goodbye Hugh, Swansea turned out for you today.

Thank you for always reading my blog.

Heaven has a huge cheeseboard but don’t eat the chives, your Dad picked them.

Rest in peace.

  4. This is so sad yet so beautiful Angie. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. We recently lost an elderly relative and only 5 people could go to the funeral, where there would have been far more in normal times. It’s harrowing. All my love, Rose xxx
