She chose to have a green burial in a wicker basket coffin. We have looked at and decided on the burial ground, a nice wild meadow with trees to mark the graves, wild flowers, a pond and a picnic area.
The funeral still needs to be arranged, we only got the death certificate today and couldn't arrange anything without it. That's tomorrows job along with other necessary paperwork.
There will be the usual celebration of her life but most definately without any mumbo-jumbo magical bullshit.
I'm not after sympathy , well maybe a little, as I know many people lose parents at a much younger age than my 57 years and parents who are much younger that mums 80 years. She was 8 days from her 81st birthday so I know I am lucky in having her for so long.
The Death certificate had the best cause of death on it that is possible. Old Age.

Thanks for taking the trouble to read this.
Cheers
Steve

My condolences.

My mother died three years ago and people here supported me. We'll do the same for you.

RE: Mum has died
I just saw this thread.

It's hard to lose a parent. In the next year you will think about her every day and in a way that's very comforting.

Sorry for your loss it sounded like it was a lovely funeral.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

"Pablo For Pope" ... I'd vote for that.

Just from the short description, she sounds like a mum we'd all want to have.

I am so very sorry to learn of your loss. Sad

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Mum has died
Thank you all ever so much. Your kind words are much appreciated. Hugs back to you all.Hug
I want to respond to some of you in this thread and will sometime soon. If you don't get a responce it is NOT because I value your words any less. Just that I don't know how to respond other than thank you.

The funeral is on the 15th.

Best wishes and thanks again to all.

Steve
