My husband suddenly passed away at the end of 2018, leaving me a single mum to a 2 and 4-year-old.
Obviously we were all heartbroken. I had my own emotions to deal with, the emotions of my 4-year-old little girl, plus a very active 2-year-old who just wanted to know when daddy would be home from work.
I remember the police coming to the house a few hours after he had died. I was obviously numb and in shock. I don’t remember much of the conversation but I know I wasn’t given much information apart from being told to contact a funeral director and the coroners’ office.
Previously, I’d been oblivious of the work that goes into planning a funeral, dealing with an estate, registering a death and overall, dealing with grief.
I threw myself into getting everything sorted. I treated it like a project. I was like a robot working my way through the processes, but it kept my mind occupied while the kids were at nursery.
I am not alone in losing a loved one. And in many ways, I was lucky as I was financially stable and work were great with giving me all the time off I needed with full pay.
I know that not everyone is that lucky.
I can’t imagine having to deal with the death of my husband, 2 young children and also having to sell my house quickly and move home.
This is a really common situation. People are happy to pay for insurance for everything from cars to pets but they are reluctant to cover their lives.
It can leave spouses in a really difficult position where they are unable to afford mortgage payments, bills, not to mention the cost of the funeral.
The last thing anyone would want to be doing after losing a loved one is to be showing people around their family home in the hope that someone will buy it before it is repossessed.
Many people think I’m crazy starting a business as a single parent with 2 young kids. But one of the reasons I started it was to help others in similar situations to me and worse.
