Sorry for my absence, my grandmother suddenly passed away on Friday and everyone in the family were very busy. It was a very shocking scene for me when we found her in her house... is something that I can never forget. The funeral was yesterday and it was very emotive for my parents, all my aunts and uncles, all my cousins and for my sister and me. My paternal grandmother had died just four months ago and I can't believe I lost both grandmothers in the same year. Since now I have no any living grandparent but comforts me to think that none of them is alone anymore.
When a person dies, after the funeral, must spend 9 days where every night the family and friends gather to pray. At the end of prayers people drink coffee and eat some bread that the principal family offers. Some relatives and friends help bringing fresh bread, candles, flowers, coffee or small dinners sometimes. Today will be the first night to pray.
