I will see my mum again.

A write up of Swindon Death Cafe

By agladman

This was my very first death cafe, coming as it did, just 5 days after my mum died of leukemia. It was a popular event as I reckon there was a dozen or so people in attendance. A fair few funeral directors or celebrants, people interested in all aspects of death and dying etc.

A few of us had very recent exposure to the death of a loved one, and I think we all got tremendous benefit from being there.

I personally realised that it wasn't too late to see my mum for one last time. The last time I saw her was the day before she died, but the funeral isn't till next Tuesday.

Hearing the opinions of others at the cafe, I realised I wanted the option of seeing her at the funeral director's. I've just made an appointment to see her there tomorrow. 

My heartfelt thanks to Sue and everyone who attended for making this event such a success.
