first of all i would like to thank you all for your lovely messages including the toluna team ,it really has helped ,we now have a date for mums funeral which is the 30th of this month and we have made all the arrangements ,though it is only really going to be family ,she has two brothers left and they themselves are too old and ill to travel ,one from aberdeen and another from london ,and they are both in their 80 s .But we understand ,also most of her friends had already passed away years ago .Her coffin is going to be a painted blue ,and her flowers will be blue and white with some thistles ,(for scotland) my two sons and my brothers three sons and my brother will carry the coffin and my daughter will walk in front with a bouquet of heather,her coffin will include a packet of M&M s ,mums favorite we swear its what kept her going ,and of course one of the songs just has to be the one i have included here.her ashes will be split in two and half will be scattered at the local cemetery where my dads ashes were scattered 32 years ago and the other half will be taken to Elgin in scotland and scattered in Cooper park where my mum and dad first met .My sister has sadly been the worst affected and keeps bursting into tears ,I am ok ,i am getting by ,but my brother is just quiet.We will all be ok ,we have each other

Communities like these can be a great help in times of need, I hope everything goes as well as it can in the current conditions and that the worst is now behind you for quite a while Rose.

I hope it all goes without a hitch ~ funerals sometimes get a little emotional !
My father-in-law (91) was buried on 29th March (our wedding anniversary) and it was a small village affair; it went well !!
It sounds like a well planned day; may the gal rest in peace !!!

We all expect it yet it still hurts but there are happy memories to enjoy.
You have each other for support but It's ad that her brothers can't make it.
Nice idea about splitting her cremains.
