My dear friends, as you will recall, I posted a while back about the death of my dear father and the customary one week celebration of the sad event in March. Though he died in November 2012, tradition demands that as a chief, his death is not announced for a while. And so yes, he has been in the morgue all the time, while the family members and myself have been putting things in place.
Finally, the date has dawned, well almost and I’ve been very busy these past days preparing for the event on Friday 1st March. (The one week is celebrated exactly a week to the day of the person’s passing. And so since he died on a Friday, the celebration will be on a Friday.) As such, I’ve not been able to blog and visit other blogs as much as I would have loved to.
I will be traveling tomorrow to my hometown about seven hours away, for the formal announcement and mini-funereal celebrations. Mind you, this is just the preliminary stuff. The real burial ceremony will be at the end of April. I will miss you all; how I wanted to join the Friday Fictioneers this week; the prompt is quite tempting. But I shall be back in time for Weekly Haiku Heights on Monday and more reviews on books I have read 🙂
I am keeping my fingers crossed about getting a few photos of the event to post on the blog. 🙂 Until then, stay blessed my friends, and enjoy the rest of the week and the coming weekend too. 🙂
