Dear fellow journeymen, Sitting here now I feel I want to see my uncle before cremation. I feel I have let him down. I was going to phone and speak to him on the Monday after I spoke to the nurse before he died. Like it happens, it was quick -3 weeks. Hubby thinks I am weird . It might be out of my hands if it is a closed coffin. I remember seeing my gran at home in the coffin in her bedroom. I was only 12yrs and it scared the **** out of me. I had flashbacks for a number of years. I don't want the same situation now. How do you decide if it is the right thing to do? I might bottle it on the day. Thanks.
