Thanks Chrissy, there are some odd cpialmcotions that have slowed things down. The illness he contracted due to his Chemo treatment was unusual so the coroner had to be informed. The undertaker was away for the weekend and didn’t get back home until yesterday, which has caused a further delay. The bank holiday weekend will delay it a bit more. On the plus side the undertaker was a personal friend of my Dad and was able to add some personal thoughts on what might be appropriate. My Dad has been in and out of hospital with serious illnesses for some time and he always bounced back. He always had hope for more stable health.The best thing we can do is treat him with the dignity he deserves.
