A Friend’s Send Off

On Wednesday we cremated my Dad.

It was a lovely send off. Standing room only at the crematorium showed how many thought so highly of Dad.

A beautiful service by the celebrant Jo.

Standard bearers and pall bearers, all volunteers – friends and former work mates.

Family supporting each other.

A full hall for the wake. Old friends catching up, looking at photos, remenising.

A day of tears, smiles, hugs.

Tiring.

A great way to say goodbye.
