Topic: Dads Celebration of Life
It was Dads funeral today, though we like to call it the celebration of his life. Even though I had wondered how we would get through the day, we did, and we did Dad proud.
The church was full, it was standing room only, and everyone commented on how it was the best service they had been to, it was full of touching moments, precious memories and laughter. Dads old workplace even shut the factory for the day in his honour.
Getting ready this morning I could smell Dads aftershave, and on the way to the service the sun came out from behind the clouds. We like to think it was Dad smiling down on us.
My son was at school during the funeral but tonight me, Mom, my husband and son went back to the crematorium and took a rose each out of the flowers to press and keep. My son asked to be left alone for a while to speak to Grandad.
My Mom has been wonderful and amazing through it all and when needed has found the strength. I do worry she may come crashing down with a bang, but with mine and our family and friends support we will all be there to help her.
Love to all xxx
