My dear uncle died of cancer fri night.Mum,stepdad and i there for end.sad
His funeral is now taking place on my stillborn ds birthday.My ds would be 22 so know i should get on with it but dont know how i will cope.
To make matters worse dh is going to have a fight to get off work as they are a nightmare.angryI know you will say he should just tell he is going but not that easy when they just paid off 6 last week.

So sorry to hear of your loss. It is especially tough that the funeral will take place on such a difficult day for you. I wish I had words to comfort you and advise you on how to get through the day. I just didn't want your thread to go unanswered.

Sorry for your difficult emotions. sad

Could your DH ring in sick?

So sorry to hear that, and sorry to hear the funeral will be on what would be such a difficult day anyway.
