I have gone over this in my mind and on the internet with no answers. My Mom is in the last stage of dementia. My Dad has always been adamant to No cremation for my Mom or himself and I will honor his wishes, but I don't know what to do when the time comes for pallbearers for my Mom. I understand usually 6, she is small and petite. Our family is very small, our church is also with few parishioners. There are only 4 grandchildren I have thought of, but 2 are girls, 2 boys and I believe that one will not come as no contact with family for years. I only wonder what do elderly people do who have outlived family and friends?
I would much appreciate any answers if anyone has ideas on this subject.
