A Funeral 2



Well, it went as well as these things can. The priest's sermon was very good, despite a little pop at Humanists. The readings were excellent: they really captured Tegs and how people saw him. The cjoice of music was first class too: Police & Thieves: Junior Murvin , Amazing Grace; White Winter Hymnal: Fleet Foxes and Janie Jones: The Clash His wife, Mandy, was a tower of strength while all around her people were caving in. She did too eventually but the support for her was immense and I wish her well on her journey. There were close to 250 people there too. A good send off for a dear friend.

  1. I find loss of a friend harder to take than loss of family. I guess it's because we chose the people we befriend, which creates a special bond. Your posts have really brought that home - my best friend died 20 years ago this year. I still miss him. But your posts about your friend have made it just a little easier. Thanks.

    1. I'm glad they've helped you, Alan. I'm still a bit shell-shocked tbh.

  2. Sincere commiserations. I have lost two of my best friends through the years and it's a whole in your life that remains with you, but in a way that's a nice thing - the lads are always with me. That's what friends are for.

    All the best, Steve
