In December we lost our mum quite suddenly. There was so much to do and so much to think about. Eventually came the question of photographing the funeral. Being a photographer I was all for it (although the family didn’t want me to do it). Some of the family wanted and some didn’t. Some thought it would be intrusive and just be a distraction. I have photographed several funerals and I really wanted photographers. I asked my very special friend Cheryl Johnson from Feelgoodphotos to take photographs for us. I am so glad we did get them done. I think even the family members who had their misgivings were surprised that they weren’t morbid but a beautiful record of our goodbye to mum.
