No Sign Of Normality

As per my last post, my mum died last Friday. It was, apparently, very peaceful. Cancer is an evil thing, and when it becomes terminal no one should have to suffer it for long.

When you are next of kin, however, death is by no means the end of the process. There is no end of bureaucracy to deal with. Consequently posts are likely to be few and far between for some time yet. Thankfully my clients are being very patient, as are Wizard’s Tower’s authors. I know I owe people email. Sorry.

    My condolences. I went through this with with my dad. If it is any consolation, the paperwork dies down eventually.

    Sorry to hear your news. I lost my mum to cancer in 2010 and understand the duties you bear; the sad dance of grief. I also understand the pressures of formal death duties which can be as harrowing as the loss. Let others help with the mundane: chores, shopping etc. Take it all in your time with each dawn.

    I will be thinking of you and send our deepest condolences.

    Cuddles, Ralph & the kids

    I’m so sorry for your loss. We lost my mother-in-law to cancer and it was awful. May time bring you peace.

    We love you and support you and understand what you’re going through. Take your time; do what you have to. We’ll be here if you need us.

  9. Speaking from our experience, it’ll be a long while before the new normal gets established. Be as kind as possible to yourself in the meantime.

    On a practical note – we found ‘The Which? Guide to Wills & Probate’ hugely helpful when we were settling my late father in law’s affairs – particularly for the checklists of things to be done.

    On a personal note, all sincerest condolences, love and hugs from here.

    Sincere condolences, Cheryl.

    Make sure you are taking care of yourself through this period – it is all too easy to neglect your own health in taking care of other people and duties.
