Isn’t it strange how we all know about wedding etiquette; party etiquette; work etiquette. But very little about funeral etiquette. The last few days have been filled with regular rounds of conversations with people asking us whether or not you do or don’t do certain things at funerals. If not, why not. And if yes, will it offend anyone. And does that matter. It’s a minefield. So as well as choosing your coffins in advance, I’d thoroughly recommend thinking about what you do or don’t want people to do.
Anyway,we think everything is coming together nicely for Monday, and that there will be a really good turn out for Rosie. Yet again we’ve been astounded by how many people know of her and want to do something to help. All of which shows that Rosie did indeed achieve her plan of not being killed by cancer, because she does live on in the things people are saying or doing or feeling. The gummy bears have come in useful, so noone need worry about either Toby or Chris fading away from lack of calories.
In amongst all this, normal things are happening again. Tomorrow we are taking Cal to look round a possible college for him for Sept 2012. Rosie was very exercised about us making the right choice for him so she’ll be with us in spirit I think.
