My Parents
« on: June 19, 2019, 11:16:48 PM »
My mum died on the 1st April 2011 and I can't say I have really grieved over her.  We didn't have the greatest of relationships which didn't get better with time.  The only time I cried was on the day of the funeral which is sad really but there are times I really miss her.

My dad died on the 27th February 2017 and that was much different even though he died exactly how he wanted - at home and going about his life normally.  It was harder for my sister as she was the one who found him and it was soon after he died.  Even though my dad had health problems and was 87 years old it was still classed as a sudden death because he died at home.  The funeral was over a month later due to the coroners office taking its time.  What has helped my sister and me has been being able to talk about happy memories.
