This is the day before.

Pádraig had a great breakfast this morning with his two visitors from Dublin, with lots of chat and good humoured laughter. When they left, I did a bit of work and then left myself to collect our daughters on the way to my sister’s where we will be staying tonight.

We’re going to bed early and will be driving to the cementary through the early morning rush hour. Because the funeral will be early, the mass will take place afterwards in Nordkirchen. We’ll then have soup and sandwiches. – It’s all quite different from what a funeral in Ireland would be like.

I wonder what the day and the day after will be like.
