This morning was really a different time. I actually went to the funeral home and made all the arrangements for my own passing.
What I have had in the past were what I thought were clear instructions on what I wanted and did not want. I thought that would be enough to ease the burden on the family at the time. I am sure having it laid out as to what I would want, would indeed make it easier.
my brother passed just a couple of weeks ago. Talking to Debbie (his wife/my sister-in-law), I got some idea of how difficult it was still actually going in to make those arrangements.
I don’t want that for Vi and my daughters so it is arranged start to finish. All they need to know is the when.
The service itself has enough flexibility with in it that any or all may add personal touches should they wish.
i admit to being nervous/apprehensive even a little scared going into this. Now that it is done I do feel more at peace.
