Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!
My father-in-law’s cousin’s wife passed away on the 11th. She was 86. According to our customs there are certain rites and rituals to be performed by the children on the 10th, 11th and 12th day after the date of passing away. Family members attend the 10th and 11th day. On the 12th other than the close family members, extended family and friends too attend. An invitation is sent to everyone by post. This was the one that we last received by post. We attended the function on the 22nd. About hundred people had attended. All the rites and rituals were performed in her second son’s house in our village. We had gone there in the morning and returned home at seven in the evening.
