I finally managed to follow through on my Dad's wishes...
Dad always made it clear that when he died he wanted to be with his Mum and Dad. Their grave is in a lovely Methodist Chapel in Terrington St Clement, so we made that happen today.
The vicar, a lovely chap, helped with some prayers and readings, and I read the following - which meant a lot to me and Dad.
American Pie Don McLean - A long long time ago I can still remember how That music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride Something touched me deep inside The day the music died
Overall it was a lovely morning and great to finally help Dad end up where he wanted to be. Still missing you buddy... x
