Sorry Christine. Have a draft, put on something he liked (music) and celebrate him!


Many thanks, that's the plan.  No churchy stuff or formal funeral service thingies, just a dozen or so of us at the graveside for the burial with one allowance - Lee had some sort of 'born again religious thing' going on so we've agreed to let a vicar kinda chap turn up briefly to say a few words but he'll not be hanging around too long.  Any arrangements will be kept simple, I have no wish for a parasitic chancer of a funeral director giving me the "The more £1000's you spend, the more you care" line just to milk the family for all the money he can (when's the last time you saw a funeral director ride a bike to work, huh?).  The funeral will be about a decent burial, while respecting Lee's wishes, with those who loved and cared for him in attendance.

Thanks to all for your kind words.


My brother was buried last week with about 15 of his nearest and dearest in attendance.  Tears flowed freely, sadness permeated the air and he's now at peace although there's still more than a little rawness in my head about Lee's death that time may help with the healing process.  I was looking at CD's on eBay a couple of days ago and saw Elvis in the listings, I was crying before I realised what was happening - Lee was a big Elvis fan and I remember buying him some Elvis records nearly 50 years ago.


Life moves on but Lee will always be with me in the warmer parts of my mind.


There's no need for any reply, Folks 'cos I think you've already been so kind with your words so I thank every one of you from my heart.   :smooch:
