My mum is in her 80s. She lives in WA, I live in Tassie. I don’t like attending funerals and have decided to not fly over for my mums when it eventuates. Cost is a big factor, along with my personal opinion of funerals being a waste of time, another factor is not getting along with my siblings who will of course be there. I visit mum every year and spend a lot of time helping her out around the house, doing things she can’t manage on her own, I think this is a much more productive way to spend our time…..while she’s still alive! But some around me are trying to change my mind, saying I’ll need closure and I’m being selfish if I don’t go. After all your mums done for you, the least you can do us attend her funeral. Now I’m feeling depressed about my decision. What do other MoMs think?
