Well the funeral went well, church full (ok 2/3rds family) but lots of friends and acquaintances from Margaret's groups: tap dancers, Operatic, Court Service and childhood friends who came from all over. Never been to a burial before (our side are all cremated) very difficult to watch my beloved lowered into the ground. She was placed alongside her dad who died in 1960 when Margaret was 10, her mum was emotional but I think she is beginning to accept our loss. My eulogy was liked by everyone I somehow managed without a breakdown but do not know how.
The wake was a happy affair celebrating Margaret's life and all liked the idea of a Lancashire hot pot rather than little sandwiches meant everyone was chatting and remembering Margaret. Children running round innocent of the loss was something Margaret would have appreciated and loved.
Yesterday spent grey day reading cards and counting the donations for PSPA research very surprised and started the probate forms. Today is sunny so will go for a walk on the beach and start to think of the future.
I have attached a photo of Margaret taken just before PSP began to ravage her but it never removed her smile. It is how I am trying to remember her rather than the last 6 years.
Thanks to everyone on this site, best wishes for your individual PSP/CBD battles. Tim
