My uncle has passed away and we have been asked to do a reading for the funeral.
The problem is that I hadn’t seen him for about 7 years and probably 10 before then, despite living in the same town.
Our family has never been close so I have no idea what to say in a reading. I’m sure they would like some nice stories but he was all but a stranger to me and my siblings so I don’t have any. I really don’t want to upset his widow, she is a lovely lady, but what can I say or do? How can I get out of doing it?
Any constructive advice would be greatly received.
