Celebration of Life

Ok I think it is time i was back blogging, don’t tell me you’ve missed me, I really hope you have.

Let me tell the unfortunate reason for temporarily stopping, though i was putting up the odd backup blog in this period

Nearly three weeks ago we received news that my late fathers cousin had died suddenly, this was a man my mother and father took in when his mother died and he was classed as a brother/Sister to us kids.

Because the death was sudden and he was only 67 we had to wait on the post mortum for cause of death which was natural causes.

Fortunately whilst waiting on post mortum the family were able to arrange most of funeral.

After that funeral at the start of the next week I received a phone call to say that my Stepdad 88 had died (again natural causes), so it was a case of rushing to be at mum’s side for the next few days. My Brother and Sister came up from England on Thursday, though she stayed with mum till Saturday.

The funeral was Friday past.

I always like to think of a funeral being a celebration of that persons life and yes their partner may be grieving for them, which is natural. Another form of celebrating their life is the funeral Tea where you quite often hear some stories about that person. Stories you’ve never heard before.
