Has anyone else had to do this, how did it make you feel?
My Dad died 2 weeks ago and his funeral was held last Friday, owing to distance and poor health we were unable to be there and watched it at home. He was almost 95 and had suffered from Dementia for the last 10 years but actually died from sepsis contracted in his care home.
I had already said goodbye to him and was prepared for him to leave us but it was still a shock and I was unprepared for the devastating grief I felt watching the service on the screen. When I saw his coffin it suddenly felt very real and just as though I was there in the chapel.
I am so glad that there was the means to let us take part remotely and another member of the family was able to read out a message all the way from New Zealand on a screen in real time which was a comfort to his mother.
