The Wake

Today I picked a lady up from a wake which was for a young chap who had died in tragic circumstances. It was heartrending to see his young children playing outside in the sunshine; obviously they were too young to understand the full implications of what had happened. They were wearing Manchester United football shirts with daddy written across the back. The lady was glad to leave as peoples emotions were beginning to surface as the alcohol took affect. I have had experience of these occasions and they can be highly charged some let there emotions out with tears but others with anger and I have known them occasionally end in violence.
