19th January 1944: "And so good-bye to another uncle..."

19 Wed. Very cool, very dull; damp, finishing up with rain. In morning to the Combe Lane flower shop to get sheaf of flowers and narcissus, which I took to Dupont Road as a tribute to Uncle Alf. Aunt Hannah was there also Cousin Harold and  Winnie. In afternoon to the committal service at Morden Cemetery; it was read most beautifully by Mr. Luckrock. And so good-bye to another uncle whose memory will never fade; I shall always remember the visits in which he always showed me his garden; so neat and trim.
