Well since I first posted, there was a post morterm. It wasn't a heart attack, but a blood clot on the brain. He died instantly
The cremation was yesterday and to be honest, it was awful. From the moment we arrived at my aunts house people were in tears. Seeing the cars arrive and the hearse was really difficult. I have never seen a coffin that close up before. Reading all the messages on the cards was heart breaking.
Inside the crematoriam was full of emotion. I found it hard to concentrate because I could hear sobbing all around me, which for some reason I didn't expect
My two cousins, age 23 and 27 did the most amazing tribute to their father. The held each other together and gave each other strength. They chose Robbie William's Angels to be played at the end, which summed up the atmosphere.
The wake was fully catered for at a nearby venue. They had lots of pictures of my uncle all over the place, my mum and dad were in quite a few of them as well. To be honest, I was glad when I got home last night as I was so tired and had a headache etc.
Anyway, back to work today and thanks for all the kind wishes above
