I could never wash my parent’s bodies. My mother died 6 years ago and she would have been horrified for me to have seen any part of her body, let alone wash her/it. But I do understand how some people could find that to be a really therapeutic action. Now I need to re-think ‘Always look on the bright side of life/death’ as it has been my choice since I saw the original film (40 years ago at least)!!
