A friend of ours is arranging his funeral, which we know, sadly, will be quite soon.
Hub has been asked if he'll be one of the pall bearers and, whilst he feels it a great honour, he is also very worried.
We don't know if he will be expected to carry the coffin, or walk beside the bier. Apart from being prone to a bad back, he is quite tall and is stressed at the thought of carrying.
We are going to say our farewells later, but have been asked not to mention the funeral.
I've posted in the Ask a grandad forum to see if any of you have done this and, if you have, any tips to cope, please.
