We’ll be attending my uncle’s memorial service today. Not sure what that entails, but it’s not supposed to be a full blown funeral service as that’s not what he wanted. It’s taking place at a church in the town he lived in and will probably consist mostly of family members getting up to speak about him. I know that my mother has been mulling over what to say for the past couple of days and I’m pretty sure my sister will speak if she’s able to attend.
As for me I mentioned previously that I wasn’t all that close with my uncle, but I tried to see if there was anything I could come up with that would seem appropriate at the service. So far I’ve not come up with anything particularly interesting or insightful so I’ll probably leave the talking to everyone else. Hopefully the clergy will keep the proselytizing to a minimum, but that’s probably wishful thinking on my part. We’ll find out in a couple of hours from now.
