Aunts funeral

I found out that my aunts funeral isnt happening until September 24th. That is going to be almost a month after she passed away. I think in the Uk they do things a lot different to us here in ireland. We have funerals 3 days after a person has died. I think the hold up with my aunts funeral was because a slot had to be gotten in the church, and also, her death certificate had to be gotten, and paperwork from the hospital where she died had to be filled up.
Her daughter said they may be able to get her funeral live streamed, I hope they can, as I’d like to be a part of it if I could be.
Like I said in an earlier post, we sent a letter to be read out at the funeral, and a photo of her 4 brothers to represent her family back in ireland.
If we hadnt had the pandemic, we probably would’ve gone and been able to be there with her family for it. Well then again, that may have not been possible, since my mom is now too scared to fly, just in case she has a breathing attack on the plane.
I think of my aunt every day. I am finding her death painful, very very painful. I just cant wrap my head around the fact that she’s gone. I still hear her voice in my head, I still hear some of the things she’d say to me.
My dad still hasnt said a lot, I do think he’s finding her death tough too though. I wish he’d show more emotions, but we cant make him do that, its something he has to come to terms with by himself.

  1. The delay isn’t unusual. My mother-in-law died recently but she was 93. She had a limited funeral three weeks after she died and when things have returned to more normal my hubbie is going to organise a Remembrance Service. Don’t bother to send condolences, we didn’t get on!
