What church is it LadyA, I thought there was much more cross-over between religions nowadays and anyway for services like funerals or weddings for that matter. the question doesn't normally arise.Dau drove me hither and yon today. We got a photo done to display on the coffin at the service - William at his desk, surrounded by books. And she photocopied the hymns onto single sheets. Also arranged to have tea and sandwiches served at the church she and I attend after the funeral. First sympathy card arrived today.
I tell you what's sad though. The number of people who have asked us if it would be alright if they attended the service - because of the church it's in, people aren't sure they'd be "allowed " to attend.
That's really interesting. My mother was Jewish, and I know in that religion the funerals are usually the following day. I remember one of her cousins died, and when another cousin heard the news (this was in The Olden Days, before Twitter, Facebook, texts and emails ), the only way he could get to the funeral in time, was rushing from his dress rehearsal in London. It was Hello Dolly, and he was an American Dandy in the 1890s!Actually, Scarlett, for here, the funeral is regarded as quite delayed! Usually, if a person dies before noon today, they would be buried tomorrow or the following day at the latest.
I do hope you are financially secure until your monies come through xxas William died at the beginning of August, I will only owe for the first couple of days, and medical care, rather than the full month. But I put the money away each week - so I have that money. The final bill should be only around 100 euro, whereas the normal bill would be over 1,000euro. That will tide me over.
