Reunion at the Funeral

My families, both on mother and father side, are organizing reunions once a year. It is fun to have this get-together once in a while but most of the time only few attend the organized reunions because everyone is busy flourishing their careers. I know it should not be this way but it seems like funeral is the best place for family reunion. Based on my observation, wakes and funerals are best attended by relatives than weddings and birthdays. It is sad that it is the only occasion that the families get together in complete count.

During the funeral
After the internment

When my Aunt died last week, I was able to see again family members and relatives whom I haven’t seen for a long time. Those who are living in different provinces came to express their sympathies. Those who are not in good terms gathered in spirit. I am glad that they came to share the pain, express their love for my Aunt and pay their last respect. But it would be happier if we can all gather in an organized reunion wherein we can enjoy and have fun and not during this emotionally overwhelming time.
