Dear Helen. Thank you so much. M’s funeral was undoubtedly an unforgettable experience. Many of us were close to M and she was clearly loved by many. The funeral was packed. It was incredibly uplifting. We didn’t feel sad. It was truly a celebration of M’s life. The turquoise blue coffin, covered with pictures from her life was outstanding. We unashamedly took pictures and instead of being put off by the coffin, many approached and walked around and laughed at the reminders of the places M had visited.
That evening we wondered what she would have thought of her own funeral and I know she would have been extremely touched by all the effort and hard work that went into it and overjoyed by the display of love for her at such a wonderful funeral.
