I lost my mum suddenly last Wednesday. She was 92 but always got on and kept busy, and I would never hover and take away her independence
I took care of her and my dad, before he went 5 years ago
Mum and I shared a house, but we still did our own thing, and we were friends.
My sister lives in another part of the country, and as all the paperwork is here, I understand it’s not easy for her, but she hasn’t given me any help with anything. I’ve arranged the funeral, contact everyone I need to, including the solicitor.
Today I think I have managed to get the latest bits done.
I have included her in everything, but she’s not bothered.
My sister and my parents had a difficult relationship, but I’m getting no support from her.
My best friend phones me every day, and I know I can phone her, my friends, neighbours and work colleagues have all been great, but with everything and lockdown. I feel very lonely.
