My daughter, Kristine, had written a poem for her Gran the previous night, and she managed, through tears at first, to read it to the church. My husband remarked later that he felt like jumping up and cheering at the end!
A lot of people came and later shared their memories of Mum with us over a cup of tea. There were many bursts of laughter from various groups as they recalled incidents from the past. I think that she would have enjoyed herself and my Dad was happy with the day.
We will be heading back to Lewis, hopefully on Monday, where another small progression will be made towards the fulfillment of our dreams. At least the furniture will have arrived and we will have somewhere to sit and discuss our plans. We will be back here at the end of November until the middle of January, keeping Christmas with the family and getting this house ready for the market. So, plenty to keep us occupied and no doubt much will find its way onto the blog.
Blessings and love to you all. xx
