I was honoured this week to deliver a memorial service for a lady who left us at the very start of covid, because of the funeral restrictions at that time her family were unable to give her the send off they knew she deserved and would have liked, so after 18 months they planned her send off in the most beautiful and personal way, a because she was a lover of a party and very sociable being they booked a room, provided food and music and there was a bar! I have never delivered a memorial in a room where you could literally hear a pin drop, because of the time since her death, the initial rawness of grief had passed and family members were able to contribute with their own words, it was beautiful, such heartfelt words, her 17 year old granddaughter could be a celebrant in the making, her poetry of words and her eloquence of speaking was amazing. Afterwards the music played were all the family party favourites, ones that brought back amazing memories of family celebrations, the celebration of life continued for many hours, so a fitting and true celebration for a very special woman.
