Subject: RE: Music and Poems for a Funeral
Well, it went as well as these things do.... Thank you for the kind thoughts, Micca, Noreen and I really appreciated them, as we were still stuck in traffic in London (Earl's Court to be precise) at 10.15am, some 25 - 30 miles away, having already been in the car for 2 hours..... One desperate phone call to say we were going to be late, one Lead footed Lizzie on the accelerator (bet you never thought that Escort Estates could do over a ton..... they can!!!) and we got there with 15 mins to spare, only to find that I'd left my hymn book at home and couldn't remember the words to a song I've been singing for 30 years!! We cobbled together three verses, I don't think anyone noticed....

The service itself was simple and moving, totally right, and I daresay Morty will post more later....

I was honoured to be asked to sing, and to be there. Thank you Morty.
