Alan [Dec. 18th, 2007|12:02 pm]

 Alan lived with Pat.  They weren't a couple; there was no blood link. He was a slow learner and she had been his teacher.  After he left school he got a factory job but his mother couldn't be relied on to get him up for work so he moved in with Pat who could. The arrangement lasted over thirty years. Ailz also lived with Pat for a while. Pat's a wonderful lady who never had children of her own but has a gift for stepping in and taking over when mothers fail.

Ailz went up to Pat's yesterday. She was there when the nice undertaker lady called. There's going to be a post-mortem and- barring complications- the funeral will take place on Friday afternoon. 

Ailz came home with a bag full of things Alan no longer needs- like curry sauces and pasta (which Pat won't eat) and big chunky mugs (Pat uses cups). One of the mugs- the one Ailz is drinking coffee from as I write- has Homer Simpson on it. Another carries a risque joke about nuts and spanners.

please pass my condolences even though I don't know them and they don't know me... Having had to watch and wait - for postmortem, then the weekend and then finally getting a death certificate to be told by undertaker that there was a 'bit of a wait' for the crematorium for my father in laws funeral, it's a hard thing not to be moved by peoples sadness and grief.

I am so glad there are people like Pat around.... we came home with a couple of packs of new socks, a few pack of rice :)

Thanks.

When my father died there was a post-mortem and we had to wait nearly three weeks for the funeral. That was grim.
