My uncle's funeral

Yesterday I went to my uncle's funeral in Auburn, Iowa. It was probably the most depressing funeral I've been to in along time. While i was in Auburn i got to see a lot of my family that i haven't seen in a long time. I was down there for two days. The best part about being there was being able to see/comfort my grandparents around their house and with the loss of their son. The worst part of being down there was having to see my mom killed me to see that.

The day of the funeral there was a mass (church service) at 2:00 p.m. There was over 100 people at his funeral. After the mass everyone got in their vehicles and got in to their spot in the line to drive to the cemetery. When we got to the cemetery everyone gathered around his burier sight. Then Father (a priest) said a prayer for my uncle and as that happened a lot of people started to cry including me. After the funeral was over there was a lunch-in back at the church in the basement.
