There was a lot of pink on Friday.
It was the funeral of OH’s sister and her boys had requested that people didn’t wear black. She was always colourful and they wanted her send-off to be colourful. There was a lot of pink (her favourite colour) in that church – everyone looked amazing. The 60 strong choir she was a part of sang two wonderful songs and made all the hymns sound wonderful too.
Her boys handled the occasion with such grace and dignity, it was wonderful and heartbreaking all at the same time.
Gerberers were some of her favourite flowers so Flo had a small posy of them which she placed on the coffin, when it was at the altar, with incredible composure for a not quite 9 year old.
And so we move on…
