    Many thanks Zand for those comforting words, both you and @jack412 are right and time is a great healer. I have a lot to sort out, which is the bit I hate most, but I have two lovely brothers to help me.

    Take care

    Love Marilyn xx

    So sorry to hear your news Mazzer. My Mum died in similar circumstances, with me several hundreds of miles away, a number of years ago now. It's horrid. But, over time, I take comfort knowing she wasn't bed-bound or hospitalised for a long time leading up to the end, as that was something she really didn't want.

    Don't rush through the sorting out. Most of that can wait a while. One of the things I found helpful was the "Tell Us Once" service you should hear about when registering your Mum's death. It was extremely useful, and saved a lot of work:

    https://www.gov.uk/after-a-death/organisations-you-need-to-contact-and-tell-us-once

    Look after yourself, and think happy about happy times with your Mum..

    Condolences on your loss. A mum is such a special person in your life but she will always be in your heart and I'm sure you have wonderful memories of her that I know you will find a comfort in the times ahead. My mum passed 6 years ago and I still think of her and the things we did together. Treasure the memories and the good times you had together. Huggs to you
