    Good morning everybody.
    I want to say how much you have all helped me to get through the last 10 days. I don't think I would have coped so well without you.
    Yesterday went well. The crem was practically full. The coffin, draped in Union flag, was heart stopping. Music great, appropriate. First eulogy, mostly factual, and a joke against me ( I knew it was coming!). 2nd eulogy, funny, but just as OH was, had a lot of people in tears. The Committal, well, that always makes me cry and this was OH!! Last post, finished off most of the rest, my bit, badly over acted, cos that was the only away I could cope, and we rolled out to Take Five.
    Caterers were excellent, apart from a bottle of white I found in the freezer! Flowers lovely. I have an deep purple orchid that I have no idea where it came from!
    Neighbours rallied round with extra chairs for garden. Cousin did the most marvellous flower arrangement which is on top of the woodburner and absolutely striking.
    Even the weather was kind! Sun all day.

    All in all, a wonderful send off . He would have been so pleased and a little bemused at it all.

    Au revoir to a true gentleman. I can't begin to tell you what you meant to me.

    It sounds beautiful, and very moving. I'm so glad it was all that you, and he, would have wished for.

    Hoping today will be a time for relaxing and remembering happy times.

    Thinking of you.
