Wish me Luck

My Mum has asked me to deliver the speech at my granny's funeral today. Gulp. Obviously, it's too hard a task for the children, but she thought it would be a more personal touch than if all the speaking was done by the priest and it should not be quite as emotionally taxing for a grandchild. "Granny would have wanted it" and "you're a very controlled person". Am I? I've "done" weddings before, but speaking at a close relative's funeral is a different pair of shoes altogether. Deeeep Breath.

Tut mir sehr leid für dich. :-(
Solch eine Rede zu halten ist sicher eine Ehre, aber eine schwierige. Hoffe, es war nicht zu schlimm!

Danke! Alles bestens über die Bühne gebracht, war fast selbst von mir beeindruckt.
