Dear Friends, on friday 4th dec my wife's Mum passed away(aged 93) it is as you can imagine real bad for my wife, we got her mum down to near us in a nursing home 20 months ago so as we could see her often, Wasn't easy but worth it. Please remember us in your thoughts and prayers on 11.15aam 17th december when her funeral is. Means there will be no decorations this year only the crib.

My thanks to you all

Thank you all for your kind thoughts words and prayers. Funeral day was dry sunny for the first part but with a wind that you could cut your teeth on. Owing to the weather forcast not a lot of people attended but were with us in spirit. Last Monday(20/12/2009) we laid her ashes to rest. It was a cold wet day but still a beautiful occasion. Every afternoon I take my old dog down the twichen(name for a sussex footpath) to the churchyard and now will look in on Mum to keep her grave neat and tidy. I have already got bulbs in my cold frame to plant so she will have snowdrops and daffs in the spring. She always loved flowers. Thank you once more Godbless you all
