My poor dad doesn't even know yet - he's deaf so wouldn't hear the phone. He moved last week while mum ws in hospital as she wanted a bungalow. Too bad she never saw it. We had a detached relationship but I'm still feeling raw.

I remember reading about this last week swedishmum. I'm sorry to hear about your mum.

Remember - your feelings are your feelings. Don't feel guilty if you feel unable to do the "loving daughter grieving" bit.

Thinking of you. (hugs)

Thank you everyone. I feel so sorry for my dad but he's turned into professional mode (as a retired vicar) and has gone home to write his sermon for the funeral. Not the best end to my birthday.

Thank you so much for all your messages - as an only child it's good to have somewhere to post. I'm so proud of my dad - he'd only moved 4 days before (for mum's sake). He took the funeral and did a wonderful sermon (he's a retired vicar but I'm not religious at all) which had all of the 130 people there in laughter and tears. How he kept it together I'll never know.

didn't read other thread so don't know all the circumstances, but it must be terrible to loose your mum whatever and wanted to offer my sympathies too
