Two sisters by the urn grave of their mother. A priest in white gown standing by I had arrived to photograph when two sisters were going to bury their mother. Whilst preparing to photograph the lowering of the urn I asked the sisters about who is going to do this.
Both of the sisters became confused by my question. "Are we allowed to lower the urn?", the sisters asked surprised.

Most of us don´t think of the possibility of relatives taking part in the funeral ceremonies.

Who would be more appropriate for lowering the urn of a parent, than the children?
