Thanks for the many suggestions. I had been informed of the possibility of maybe nothing before Monday (even a wake) - but I wanted to avoid the solemnity of Good Friday or celebration of Easter. Either of those days, to me, just weren’t appropriate for a wake. I would have avoided Holy Thursday, as well.
But I’ve been able to arrange a wake for Saturday. It seems that Holy Saturday’s only difficulty is getting a priest that evening, which came as no surprise to me - I’m assuming due to the many Easter vigils. A funeral Mass - planned for Monday - may, to my surprise, be said by a family member who I haven’t seen since before he took his priestly vows. Should be interesting.
I appreciate the many suggestions and learning how various parishes are dealing with conducting Holy Week funeral services. To be sure, this experience comes as an unexpected education for me. I thank you and ask for your continued prayers & support as I struggle - not so much with the losses which is part of life - but dealing with the earthly, medical demands that accompanied each of my parents’ passing. It is that, which will be the emotional and spiritual mountain I have yet to climb.
God grant you all a blessed Holy Week and Easter.
