My great-uncle passed away...

He died earlier this week. I've only met him once or twice before, so I don't really know much about him. I do know he had a motorcycle, but that's about it.

He was my grandfather's only remaining brother. The other, er, 3, I think--I'm not that aware of relatives outside aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents--have already perished. All five of his sisters are still around, but still. I can't imagine he's in good spirits right now.

So anyways, I'll be attending his funeral tomorrow. I've never been to one before, so I'm unsure of how long these things usually are. So, just as a precaution, I'd advise you not expect to see me around here much tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear that. My uncle passed away 2 years ago and I attended his funeral on my 21st birthday :/

    Like you, it was my first funeral. It was pretty basic and only lasted about 20 minutes or so. It was a Christian funeral which are usually pretty short from what I gather.

    On my 18th birthday this year, I had to attend my first funeral which was for my great-grandmother. Depending on what goes on during the funeral, they can last a long time.

    I'm sorry you have to go through this, Charles. >:

    Sorry to hear about your loss
    I've only been to 3 funerals before, my first being my grandmother's on my dad's side. I can't remember a lot of it since it was so long ago, but it was pretty all of us...felt like it lasted so long

    I'm sorry for you and everyone close to him.
    I've been to only one funeral for my grandfather, when I was about 7 or 8. I don't remember much, but I do remember that it was about an hour or two.

    I've been to funerals, they aren't that bad, really. Their length does indeed vary wildly.

    Sorry about your lost and best of luck.

    Sorry to hear of your loss...

    I've...actually been to a lot of funerals in my lifetime... A lot of them did last a while (though, most of the funerals I've been to have been Catholic ones, so that may be why they were so long ).

    Also, a lot of the funeral I've been to had a dinner or something like that after the service, and those also take a while.

    I feel for you. My paternal grandma just lost one of her two surviving sisters last week.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I attended my father's funeral a year ago. I'm sure the length varies, but it went by pretty fast for me.

    Best of luck to you from here on out.
