Lyn, forget the crowd on Wednesday. Just focus on thinking how your mum would feel at such a good turn out for her. It will be just fine, you'll see.
For me, I just went into auto pilot and took it all as it came. I'm not religious but always felt slightly unworthy at my mum's church and with her congregation so the funeral service at her Kingdom Hall was a little daunting. However, it went well.
I think you will find it easier than you might imagine. It's not your role, or is expected of you, to be "sociable". Just be as you feel you want to be. Nobody will be judging you
