All clouds have silver linings and TP, I think has been a silver lining for all of us. it is a wonderful tribute.

Thoughts go with you and your family at this sad time.

Many thanks for all the kind wishes. You must have brought me luck.

The funeral was emotional but a celebration, the kind of send off dad would have wanted. I miss him dearly but am so grateful for all the people who have treated dad with dignity and respect through his illness. As far as I'm concerned dad was always an individual and did not deserve to be treated any differently. And that's the great bond we all have on Talking Point, we respect the ones we love and treat them with dignity. We still have to shoot that message across to the outside world.

Thanks to Bruce, Katherine and Said, it meant a lot to see you there.

Some of you know but it has been a tough few years, I've lost my mother, father and also my brother last November. It is time for reflection and to settle into the new place we find ourselves. It felt quite odd not visiting dad today, but I know he was more than ready to find peace.

Talking Point is a great legacy and it gives me a lot of hope.
But I really do hope that in my lifetime, we find a cure.

Dad would not want anyone to suffer in the same way as he did.

Kindest Regards
Craig

Dear Craig,
I am so glad to see that the funeral was also a celebration.
But so sad to read of the many losses you have had to deal with in the past few years.
"Talking Point is a great legacy."
Indeed it is, and your parents would be very proud of you. (I'll bet your brother already was.)
And we, those of us who come to TP, are all hugely grateful.
Love, Nan XXX

Dear Craig,

I was wondering how the funeral went, and I'm glad it was a celebration and the send off your dad your dad deserved :).

Talking Point is a great legacy
And what a legacy!

I echo what Nan has said - your dad would be so proud of you. x
