I'm in England at the moment for my MIL's funeral which was yesterday. The funeral director wore the traditional long coat and top hat and he walked ahead of the hearst. Also all the neighbours had drawn their curtains in respect.
What kind of traditions do you have?

Thank you deedee. It was a beautiful service which did celebrate her life. The woman who officiated the service spoke about her life, how she met her husband, the interruption of their courtship because of the war, her devotion to her family (4 kids and 10 grandchildren) and how she and my FIL had just celebrated their 60th anniversary last month and their card from the Queen. I was very lucky to have such an awesome MIL.
