I have no idea whether I have made the right decision.
The decision for my children to attend their first funeral.
A few days after my nan died, people started asking whether I was going to take the children to her funeral.
And at that point I really did not know.
But then the children started talking to me about the funeral.
And as they are 9 and 12, I let them make their own decision.
And they both decided they wanted to be present, to say goodbye to ‘older nanny’
They will be involved in the funeral, by carrying flowers from her favourite shop Marks and Spencer.
I can’t protect them for ever. Death is a part of life.
And tomorrow we will go and say goodbye to ‘older nanny’
A most wonderful woman who lived to the fantastic age of 90.
