whispering a sad farewell
Yesterday I had the sad task of saying farewell to a lovely lady who I had lived next door to for 10 years. She had seen me at my best and at my worst, was loving and kind and would do anything for anyone. Even when fighting cancer she was more concerned that she couldn’t keep up with her voluntary stints at the local hospital and blind group. She was the salt of the earth who had worked hard all her life, she enjoyed her weekly trips to the bingo and often just caught a bis on her own to see where it would take her.
She loved going on holiday and went several times a year, usually with her friend as she had lost her husband a few years before I got to know her again. She had three children and five grandchildren and loved them all dearly. She was brilliant with my own grandchildren who often called round for her to ask if she was ‘ playing out’ 😂
after the service we were invited to take one of the roses from her casket flowers, which were beautiful roses in yellow and cream, yellow being her favourite colour and a true reflection of her sunny nature.
Good night and godbless Irene , thank you for your friendship, guidence and love, forever in my heart x
