Hi All,

It will be my mum's funeral on Monday. My brain seems to be full of all sorts right now. Trying to make sure everything is in place for Monday. Can't sleep much but I don't seem to feel tired.

So sorry you were awake in the early hours, Sonia. Hopefully you will sleep better as things get sorted ahead of Monday. We can carry on for a certain length of time on adrenelin resulting from our loss, but you do need to be careful of yourself, and try to sleep (I know it can be impossible sometimes, hence my user name.)
I do hope the arrangements are going well for your Mum's funeral Sonia, and you can have some quiet time for yourself, to be calm and still and think of her, now at peace.
Thinking of you, xx

I am sure all will go well tomorrow and I hope you get great comfort from the people who share the day with you. You can always catch up on sleep so do try not to get stressed about not sleeping and spend your waking time remembering the good times together xxx thinking of you xx

Hi all,
The day I never thought would get here. Its our mum's funeral this afternoon. I feel and hope that I have done her proud. Little touches which I think she would like. Packets of Forget me Not seeds to give everyone. A raspberry ruffle tree as she loved eating them. A memory tree for everyone to write their memories for her. Balloons for her little Greatchildren to release. Be with me mum during one of the hardest days Love you Sonia xxxx

Hello Sonia

You have taken a lot of care and gone to a lot of trouble to make your mum`s funeral an occasion which would have pleased her. I hope it brings you comfort.

Thank you all

Yesterday was a sad day but it was filled with lovely memories, lots of hugs smiles. We held mum's wake in the sheltered accommodation lounge where mum had lived happily for 5 years. It made it easy for the others to attend. She would have loved it.

One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.
Thank you Love Sonia and Family xxx
