    My uncle has died after a long illness, he had been in and out of hospital for a while and past few days been in critical condition and now he passed away. According to a relative the funeral is going to be held on the 2nd January (if I remember rightly), I just hope it all goes ok because we used to be close, but then my dad and my uncles daughter had a huge row a few years ago and haven't spoken since. My dad said he can't forgive her but I know my dads temper when it starts and I just hope he (and her) will hold the tongues. What a way to start the new year, and to end this one. :(

    RIP Uncle R.

    Elaine I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. But he is at peace now with no more suffering from his illness. As for the family, sometimes it takes, unfortunately a shared loss to heal old wounds every one learns to move on. I hope this happens for your Dad and your Uncle's daughter.

    The funeral went ok, we attended the service in the church and it was such a big turn out, we had to stand. We were going to go to the crematorium but my dad didn't feel well in the church so we came home after. We didn't really see his daughter, only from the distance but there wasn't any trouble. My uncle had a good send off.

    First, my condolences.
    Good to hear that your uncle had a good send off.
    I think its important to make such moment of grieve as peacefull as possible
    in order to keep remembering the beloved ones with no remorse.
    Hope youre managing to cope :hug: :)
