That sounds very comforting @Baby Bunty. When my husband died I agreed to speak at the church. I typed up my speech and had a copy ready for the minister. The plan was that if I couldn't do it on the day he would read it for me. I actually made it on the day. Strength came from somewhere.

Wishing you well.

@Baby Bunty. Your day sounds lovely. I’m planning speak at my Dad’s funeral too. I think it will be therapeutic talking about his life and all that he achieved. He self built 2 houses for example.
It’s so strange I can’t believe he’s gone.
