I was called Wednesday as mil had tried to wake him but found him on the floor in his room awaiting coroner's report for cause of death. Thank you to all of you on this forum for your support and I will pop in too keep supporting you whenever I can xxx favour please though if anyone has had or said a eulogy with anyone with this disease could you please share as I want to say something at his funeral xxx thanks k xx

    I am sorry to read your sad news, please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

    My husbands Great Grandson did the eulogy, I would have had no idea where to start, hopefully someone will be able to help you on this.

    Thank you all, you have all been so comforting and supportive whilst fil had this awful condition. The coroner has informed me that it was a massive heart attack as well as furring of the arteries. As ever there are alot of family politics to deal with and the funeral is Wednesday, this have become so fraught with estranged family members I was at the point of not going to the funeral or the wake but have decided to for the sake of fil as I was the one who took him everywhere whilst he was with us.
    Think I have now sorted everything to the point I can and just hope that all the "do gooders" who were not there for him whilst he was alive stay away from me at the funeral as I don't think I will be able to contain my anger.
    Thank you all for your kind wishes and I will pop on and offer support where I can

    Karen
