Well we had the funeral today for my mum and the sun shined! I was dreading it to be honest but amongst the tears there was a feeling of happiness because so many people turned up to celebrate her life. I hope that things will get easier in time but just want to remember the good times and remind myself that she is not suffering from this awful disease anymore. x

Mackie, I'm glad that the sun shone and the celebration of your mother's life brought you happiness. It will get easier as time goes on and you will start remembering your mother and not the disease.

Glad the sun shone and lots of people came to remember her as well.

It will get easier as time goes on and you will start remembering your mother and not the disease.
That's the bit I'm hoping for now. There are some pre-dementia memories surfacing. But they've got to wade through 13 years of disease first.
