One foot in the grave...

So, the service comes to an end. We head outside where the ashes are re-interred. Not exactly a sombre occasion but certainly respectful. With the ashes back where they belong - in a hole in the church grounds - the vicar says a few final words. And smiles at us. We smile at him and say thank you. He smiles again. Then he steps backwards. Into the hole and right on top of me dear old dad. My, how we laughed.
