Today was my father's cremation. So much to sort beforehand. Up until this morning I was listening to music for this afternoon. All went well and I was able to say whatever I was going to say.
It is all so final.
When my husband died, I found out that you could go all the way to the oven at the crematorium. This was such a help for me to be able to do that. So, with my father I wanted to do the same. It was a different crematorium, so all was different but we were able to go to the oven again.
If you ever go to a cremation, I highly recommend you try and go as far as the oven. It is only for the close family but it really brings things to an end.
I have tried to make it a celebration of life rather than doom and gloom.
We finished with this music.
It was his own wish to have this music played. He loved that film.
So many people said afterwards that this music made all the difference to it all.
Tomorrow I have some legal things to sort out, but afterwards I can start to sort out my Magic Dobby loom with the new interface. Watch this space.......
