Great Royaldevon 2020-09-17 4:45

Hello Mariusz,

My heart gave a lurch, when I read the title of your photograph! I thought you were telling us something sad!

However, all is not as it seems.
I like the idea of one's ashes being spread around the world, sharing them with all continents, and all peoples!

You have shown us a very well exposed photograph of the cemetery chapel, with no oe on the pale walls, despite the sunlight.
The dappled shading adds subtle contrasts.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: plans

Hi Bev,
thank you for your kind words. My nephew, 37, died in a tragic accident earlier this year leaving behind two little children. I visited his tomb on this old cemetery. Indeed there was a discussion on how to plan the funeral. It seems many people have very particular expectations. Even the fact that his body was cremated was not perceived well by some very traditional members of my family.
I thought I will clarify my view on this subject publicly in advance.
I hope to live a bit longer though, I would like to help my daughter yet, but you never know.
Kind regards,
Mariusz
