Uncle Cyril

The last remaining member of the Thomas elder generation - Uncle Cyril - passed away last week and the funeral was yesterday. We couldn't go so I just hope that Valerie and the rest of the family can uderstand. I am dreadful at funerals and my own selfish thought always overwhelm me to the point of embarrassment.
Cyril was my own dads' best mate and it's the way I've always thought of him. 'Always' is a bit misleading - I didn't know that they even knew him until my MIL was in hospital dying - 6 years after my dad had died! Cyril had been at our wedding and at my dads' funeral and never realised we were related!
I hope they are friends again, playing cards and drinking southern (yuk) beer LOL
