My uncle died on the 29th March. He was cremated on the 5th April. That was the day we returned from our holidays. So upon landing in Brussels Charleroi, we got off the plane and headed for the crematorium to attend the service in the afternoon. We missed the church service in the morning.

In his memory, I have added the name we called him by, Parrain, to the GNU Terry Pratchett "X-Clacks-Overhead" header on my website. This ensures his name is passed around the internet for as long this site is running.
