Funeral procession

Day 30, Wednesday 20 September 2017

Two funerals for Ulysses people on successive days is not a good look! Both were for women who died of cancer at similar ages.

Today we were asked to meet at the deceased’s residence, and follow the hearse from there to the cemetery. I imagine it must have been an impressive display to see all these large motorcycles riding in close formation behind the hearse, blocking off traffic as necessary to stay together.

The service was particularly moving, with almost every speaker visibly struggling with tears.

I wasn’t inclined to go riding afterwards.

Distance travelled: 65 km. Total distance so far: 3903 km
