Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’
A weekly festival of writers sharing excerpts from their work.
Many different genres; something for everybody. Enjoy!
It’s been three months since my last post here and I’m happy to be back!
This is a continuation of “The Visitation”.
Have you ever had a memory that haunted you for life?
Previous instalment HERE.
There would be two days of visitation, followed by a Catholic funeral mass, then interment. This was her first brush with death and the grief overwhelmed her. She couldn’t face going to the funeral home alone and enlisted a friend to lean on. According to rumours, the family had insisted on an open casket, despite the severity of his injuries. Hard to find a sombre outfit. It was 1971 and her wardrobe was full of mini skirts and hot pants. That black maxi at the back of the closet would have to do! Knees trembling, stomach tight; she waited for her friend to collect her.
Such a traumatic event for a young woman!
Thanks for dropping by.
