Week 18: The Funeral by Christopher

The priest came, then there was complete silence for a few moments. About thirty people were there.  There wasn’t much space because we were in the house.

The priest just finished and my Mam started crying. I hugged her, my eyes got tearful; then I started crying. While the coffin was entering the car my brother played the national anthem on his bag pipes. We then walked behind the car to the church.

We shook hands with everybody. While the coffin went under we all threw a Mauve rose in. The steel outskirts were covered. We then all had a lovely dinner in silence, Beef and Carrots.

  1. Great use of all 5 words from the prompt! You could put some more description in. We could feel the tears running down our faces. Reading that made us want to cry.

  5. Hi Christopher
    This was a really well written piece this week and obviously written from the heart. Often people shy away from writing about difficult times but, as a reader, it can be very moving and thought provoking.
    Thank you for the courage to put down your ideas in such a mature manner.
