Hi cjn, how are you going ? Did you manage to read your eulogy today? I imagine you are feeling exhausted and numb, but I hope you post again when you feel like it.
I wish I’d seen your post earlier, but today is actually 6 months since I buried my 19 year old son, so I’ll shed some tears alongside you tonight.
I have also had to bury my father, organise everything, experienced the same emotions (still do) but I’d like to invite you to slow down and let yourself grieve a little.
The coroner can wait, and it’s too early to think about his estate. I recommend doing what I did, wearing my dad’s flannelette shirts that smelled like him to bed tonight, even if it makes you cry, it’s comforting, I promise xx
