The Dearly Departed – Part II

The funeral service I attended was for the wife of a former colleague. It was well attended and a nice tribute to a life well lived. During the homily I was reminded of a funeral service I attended many years ago.

The funeral was for my brother’s mother-in-law. My nephew Michael gave the homily. He began by saying, “Nanny was a very giving person, ………. particularly when it came to Avon products.” The packed church erupted in laughter. It was a nice opening for a splendid tribute.

Well done, Michael.
