Came across the Dying Matters Awareness stand in Harlow - and it has made a real difference..
I was visiting Harlow and met with staff on your stand raising dying matters awareness. It was very useful as I had just been to a friends funeral and had never considered before where or what I wanted for myself. Having gone home and thought about this I had to the opportunity over Sunday lunch to discuss this with my family. It has made such a difference they now know what and where I want to be and I know some of what they want. It was a really fun afternoon as we were able to see the funny side of it rather than the emotional strain of losing someone and making decisions about what you don’t always know. I love the dying matters website as well and am very grateful that I was in able to meet you. We even laughed that perhaps it was my mate sending us all a message!!
