On a cold breezy night my family brought gifts for our uncle before he went over seas. Later on my family had to say goodbye.
Once we got home I stayed up and watched television. I received a phone call from my cousin saying that my uncle have died while he was waiting for his flight. During his funeral I watched the family relatives crying like a flowing waterfall which was unstoppable.
On the last day we took his body to the cemetery in Otahuhu.
Watching the body go down made me sorrowful because that was the last time I was going to see him. Later that day we headed home for a rest.
