Tonight I am exhausted as apparently telling my mother in law and my step children numerous times that Doug did not want anyone to speak at his funeral I am having to deal with the fact that they have asked his brother to write some words to be said at his funeral! Maybe meddlers is too strong a word but I am shattered by the amount of objections I am having to face only 12days after his passing. I am totally lost and very upset that they seem to think I am being awkward rather than following his wishes....this from people who are making it clear will not bother with me again after next Thursday....thank god for good friends and my own children. To lose my soulmate and his families support...I do not know how I will get through the next week
