I'm in shock right now. My beloved mother-in-law passed away this morning quite suddenly. She is in the UK and air traffic over Europe is still suspended due to the Icelandic volcano. It is highly unlikely that we will be able to attend the funeral.
How can we achieve closure?
Please be respectful of the fact that our family is not religious. Sincere prayers are welcome.

Thank you ladies. We have no one we can share this with in such a personal way. All of my husband's family are in England and my close family are 400 miles away in another province. Although when we visit in the summer we could arrange something then.
Video of the funeral would help us to feel like we attended but I always considered that to be inappropriate. What do you think? I guess I never considered unusual circumstances.
