My cousin was not even a year old when he crawled into the family swimming pool and drowned. This left him brain damaged and a quadriplegic. He was only 7 when he died. Today the family had his unveiling. The stone is huge. Easily the biggest in the entire graveyard, but it suits. Got to see my Dad and his side of the family. Despite that he only lives up the road, we very rarely see each other. My Nana was the highlight of the day when she held the microphone like a cellphone and spoke during her talk. My Dad kept whispering that she was a silly old bat, so when I'd giggle my brother would look disapprovingly.
