For such a humble little flower, forget-me-nots have a big place in our hearts and are often used as a symbol of remembrance. The subject of poems and legends, the forget-me-not’s cult status outweighs its diminutive size and simple beauty.
We meet Amanda German of whiteballoon.co.uk, a free online resource for funerals and end of life planning. Combining practical advice with inspiration, it has been designed both for funeral planning, and also for anyone who wants to share their own wishes with their loved ones.
It goes without saying that a funeral is usually a time to gather friends and family together to celebrate the life of a loved one, but in the current crisis this is simply not possible. So what can be done to help bring people together to pay their respects to a much loved friend or family member?
In this Q&A we catch up with Sam Grice, founder of Guardian Angel, an online platform which helps family and friends to connect and coordinate when planning a funeral or making important end of life choices.
