I am preplanning Mom's funeral since she has money set aside and we need to use it for her funeral since she does not have life insurance.
I am the main caregiver for Mom. Others are in a variety of states of denial. I really do not want to stand there hearing them tell everyone how much they miss their beloved Mother. The same mother they have done next to nothing for her care as her dementia gets worse.
To see them cry and wail is more than I can stand. I have come to terms that they are unable to step up and do their part.
So I want to set up a viewing that is not published in the paper and let those who know me if they want to support me they come at that time. Then I will leave and the rest of the family can attend the other viewings.
And they can play out their drama without me.
