At 70 years old and brought up in the care system in the 40s and 50's, there were too many funerals to count. As a child, diptheria, measles, polio, TB and other related saw off many of the children I was in care with. My first husband died of Motor Neurone. I have buried 2 babies, both stillborn. Buried a grandchild, stillborn 3 years ago.

My dad is a bishop so growing up I had to go to all the elderly church members funerals. I think probably I've been to about 40 or 50. Only 2 family members and 1 personal friend, though.

2 grandparents and 1 family friend, sums up basically that we are all going to die.....and that's how it should be. People live life like they are going to live forever, the reality is, time is short. Death is probably the greatest law of this universe, gets rid of the old to make way for the new. Whether you believe in god or not, death is the greatest reality check.

Too many and certainly more than twenty. Thing is, mortality is 100%. If we live to an old age, we outlive all of the previous generation and maybe all of our own generation not to mention a good few of the generation that comes after.

The hardest of all are children.

Sounds like you've had a rough ride.

My partner is adopted - her mother was forced to give her up from birth as she was 17 and raised in the care system in Ireland. (Wexford) Her parents married a couple of years after and are still together.

one, my grandma made me leave in the middle of the school fair when I was primary school to go to a funeral. I still don't know who it was that died.
