My sister has sent me a text to say she is scattering Mum’s ashes tomorrow.
There is no way we can attend, but at least we can light a candle for her at the due time.
The entry in the Book of Remembrance will be for both of them on their wedding anniversary in August. Sis thought the weather would be better should we wish to travel down to see it.
There is no need for us to visit Down South now. We only went to see Mum after all.
Family there have their own lives of which we have no part and Mum is forever with me.
I loved my Mum and Dad very much, but in the circumstances, a seven and a half hour journey to read three lines is impractical, and my parents would appreciate that.

I understand that provided you give the crematorium staff notice, you can arrange to view a particular day at any time, and also believe we will be able to view the relevant page on-line in due course.
I’m glad Sis has finally got her act together though, whatever the reasons are for her delay.
