All the things

you didn't want to know about funerals. My mother died early on Tuesday morning and I have been arranging the funeral as well as clearing out the back bedroom for my eldest daughter who is flying in tomorrow morning. I am feeling much better now it is all over, sitting at my mother's bedside waiting for the inevitable to happen just tore me apart. She was 94 and had had a good life, done most of the things she wanted to do and just plain wore out. So bear with me until I get my life back on track, please. It most certainly is true to say that death is a great emotional trauma in your life, plus afterwards you are run off your feet doing all the necessary things.
