Oh Caroline, I am so sorry for your very recent loss.
I lost my husband to cancer 10 months ago.
It helped me to think of his funeral as the last nice thing I could do for him.
I wrote down everything I wanted to say - I thought i might struggle but the words came easily - and the music.
‘I know you by heart’ by Eva Cassidy I knew he liked Eva Cassidy but I’d never heard that song before - but it really spoke to me.
Cherish your final goodbye - it’s hard but I think it helps knowing you have put your heart into it.

Much love and hugs .x


i planned my husbands funeral. Wrote it all. We had any dream will do as we went in sang by him. He had a lovely service and afterwards we celebrated his life by having screen with all the lovely pictures on relay and songs from the musicals. That was our thing. Every day i cry of course we all do i talk to him all the time😢
