Madrid Airport Bombing

When I saw news about the airport bombing in Madrid on Friday, I didn't give it much thought even though my dad is in Spain right now.  He flew on Thursday into Portugal and drove into his area of Spain because the airfares were better.  I totally forgot that my uncle's body had to go through Madrid. 

At some point he had to be re-routed and the body was actually lost for a couple of hours.  Because of the craziness and all, the family had to change their plans and he was immediately put into the masoleum wall thing.  

Well, sort of.  The casket that they put him in at the funeral home here was supposed to be a standard European-sized coffin.  So aside from my uncle being too broad-shouldered to really fit in the coffin, the coffin was then too big to go into the wall and they had to "shave out" the concrete to make it fit. 

So much for "rest in peace" right?

Wow - what a mess! I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. I missed a few posts while traveling - or LJ isn't showing them all on my FL.

I haven't really made a whole lot of posts lately but you're on my FL and I don't know how to do a CFG so you should be seeing everything...

It's happening to a fe journals. I'll read something and have to go back to see what they are talking about. But, I haven't been on as much either since I was at my moms. That could be it too.
