Thank you all so very much...getting a bit teary again reading all your warm words of support :)
The funeral wasn't as bad as I had dreaded, worse for my mom and my sister I think. Got really emotional reading what I had written for my grandmother, but it felt good to have done it and it also felt like everyone attending sent her "away" with respect and love.

So thank you again and a huge hug back to all of you!
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

Oh hun, I just saw this thread and i am sooo sorry for your loss. I think you can take heart that she truly is in a better place now. I am 48 and have lost more family and friends than I care to count.

Huge Hugs and Love

Oh, I've just found this thread.

Sadly, I never really knew my grandparents. My dad's mum I met (mad Northern Irish lady!!), but the rest were dead before I was born, except my mum's mum, who died the day I learned to walk.

Her last words were "Oh. Hello, Eric. Have you come to get me?". Eric was her husband.

I lost my darling daddy in November 2004, and I feel your pain.

I thought there was something wrong with me when he died, as I couldn't cry. But as I had to take over all the admin (Jeez, how much paperwork is there to do when somebody dies, and don't solicitors take all your money?), and I kept telling people that I couldn't cry.

Come the funeral, as soon as I sat down and opened the Order Of Service, I went.

Friends told me after that they were glad when they saw my shoulders heaving.

The guy in charge of the funeral was a friend from the (Dorset) village mum and dad live(d) in. We were talking afterwards, outside the crematorium, and I was going on about the ridiculous amount of money spent on flowers.

He said he'd been to funerals where there were "at least" £2,000 worth of flowers.

What an ridiculous waste.
