It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that my lovely husband and undergardener, Ray, passed away on 3rd May. Unfortunately he didn’t make it home from the hospital, the doctors decided that his body wasn’t up to the journey, but all the family were with him when he passed away. My nephew Tim had flown over from Canada to be with us and he was a wonderful support for us all, his big hugs were just what we needed when we were feeling overwhelmed.
Ray’s Funeral Mass was last Wednesday and our little church was packed, such a wonderful tribute to a quiet gentleman. Everyone who met him took him to their hearts. The singing of the hymns was truly amazing and with the readings which we had chosen, made the service more a celebration of his life. Everyone commented on his wonderful sense of humour and I have to admit that our 51 yrs of married life was a life full of laughter. We all miss him dreadfully but are so lucky to have had him in our lives.
Rest in peace my love, your long struggle is now over.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous post. It made such a difference to us, knowing that you were thinking and praying for us all.
