For a while it looked like I wouldn't be able to sort much out Monday but the hospital phoned and said that the death certificate would be available at 12:30. I made an appointment with the registrar for 2pm and the funeral director for straight after (it was a 3 minute walk). By 3:30 everything was sorted.
The funeral will be at Pardon Wood Cemetary at 2:00 Wednesday 9th January.
Dad has a few things to do today and tomorrow night we're seeing the chap taking the service. Would anyone care to name some could hymns (first lines please as the crematorum has supplied a list of hymns but given the first lines only)?
I'm safer on the entry exit music. Something like Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, Morning by Peer Gynt or Pachbel's Canon.
I've used 0.5 of my permitted 3 days sympathetic leave. The rest will be used next week. I don't think I'll be up to being here on the Thursday.
