    Hey team, pretty tired here after a big day yesterday with a funeral then a wake that went well into the night. I cried many tears, chatted to many people, heated up many pizzas and garlic breads and cheese rolls, poured a few cups of tea, snuggled with many kids, hugged many adults, sung a few songs, cleaned up a few empty bottles, cried some more tears. It was a beautiful way to send off our lovely matriach. What a special lady. 350-400 people at her funeral, she had devoted her whole life to people and it showed with how many people turned up to pay their respects. I was very grateful for my clear head throughout, my deep connection to what was going on and my ability to be present for everyone I crossed paths with. Today the sun is out and we start to get used to our new normal without her in our midst. Hug the ones you love and live life to the fullest. Oh and don’t drink shit booze.. it adds nothing but has the ability to take so much away. xxx

    • Our hearts are aching for you & your family Mrs D. It is because of YOU that so many of us are now gratefully & happily living our lives to the best of our abilities. Sending much love your way xx

    • How fortunate for you that you had someone like that in your life and were able to have enjoyed these last years with her sober. Take care of yourself.

    • Love and thoughts with you and your family @mrs-d. So true about booze and well said. It’s a thief of life and love. ❤️❤️

    • So wonderful to see the huge turnout for our amazing elder women eh Mrs D? My beloved auntie’s funeral last year was similar 😊❤️😢

    • Pure honour shines through all colours of that kaleidoscope @MrsD. Bless your heart.

    • It sounds beautiful and another memory to be cherished. Take care in the ‘new normal. Sad times ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

    • Big hugs to you all xxx
