Good Morning Ladies,
Well today is going to be a hard one, I hope and pray that Mum would be proud of what we have done to give her the best Funeral Service possible given the frustrating complications of the Covid Pandemic. I spent most of Saturday allocating the 6 remaining spaces after Children and Grandchildren, so I hope that there are no upsets over places etc. One thing that I didn't think about was that we will all be sitting 2 metres apart, I think that this is the one time I would like Paul and the girls at my side, this is their first funeral as they were too young when Dad died, I have done my best to talk them through the whole thing so that they know exactly what to expect, Matt and Becca came to Dad's funeral so they have a better idea, these are those moments when you want to wrap them up and protect them. We still haven't made any final decisions on what we will do afterwards, we will play it by ear and see what the weather is doing. One thing is for sure I will be making sure that my Brother and Sisters stay in touch, they have a habit of not bothering to contact one another for months at a time, which I think is so sad, in some respects we have nothing to return to Rowhedge for apart from visiting Mum at the Cemetery, so I will be encouraging them to come and stay with us as much as possible. It would be nice to have a nice family Christmas but I think that the Covid restrictions are still expected to be in place then so that won't work. We have agreed to get together as a family for Mum as soon as the restrictions are lifted.
