Last Stage of a Long Journey by KeldBach Last Stage of a Long Journey by KeldBach
I don't usually post pictures from my private life here, but thought this one might also be of interest to others. It's from my dear old mom's funeral this afternoon and although I'm not a religious person, I thought the rather simple ceremony performed in a local chapel was a beautiful and dignifying conclusion to her long and rich life. She was 90 years old and struck by a heart attack a few days ago. Hope you can feel the warm and peaceful atmosphere here too.

My condolences to you, Keld! This is indeed a very dignified funeral. I still remember that you made a beautiful photo book for your mom not long ago. Yes, she had lived a long and rich life, and she had an accomplished child to be very proud of.

I'm sorry for your loss, Keld. :(

The photo is really very atmospheric and peaceful. I think most people would not take a camera to a funeral but I'm sure you are glad you did.
