    Yep...

    My thoughts are with u.

    Funerals are hard. But I think they're good for helping you focus on life and all the good memories, and are important for grieving too.

    I've had two big ones in the past 2 yrs. My own Dad and then a year later my girlfriend's Dad. I've got strong family memories from both that will last forever.

    I wrote and read the eulogy at me Dad's. That was hard to do, but I'm very proud that I did it.

    R.I.P.

    Lighters...

    Rest up mate it's hard but Funerals can be a good thing as you realise how much the person has done in their life, how many people's lives they have affected and it's an opportunity to celebrate that. You still have your memories though :)

    deeply sorry to hear of your losses guys. Its hard when stuff like this happens in your life. You just have to think of all the good stuff/experiences you have shared with the person you lost.
    i remember when my nan died and we were incredibly close. she used to live with us but my parents thought it best we put her in a home as she was suffering from demensia (she thought people were in the tv trying to steal her thoughts & she also thought my mum and dad were stealing from her) I always regret never going to see her in the retirement home and then one morning she passed away. I wrote her a poem and read it at her funeral, to kinda try and make amends.

    If you have an elderly relative, every time you see them, remember it might be the last so be good to them.
