My husband Raymond - eternal memory
« on: May 28, 2009, 06:54:27 PM »
My beloved husband passed very peacefully from this life  2hours ago.

Mt elder daughter and I were with him.

He is now at peace and free from all suffering.

I would be grateful if you would keep him in your prayers

May the memory of Raymond, beloved husband of our friend and sister, be eternal and may she, their daughters, and grandchildren be comforted in the prayerful expectation that he is in a place of light and love.

Thank you all for your support.

Raymond's funeral will be on Friday morning at 11.30 and ,in accordance with his wishes , it will be a cremation. It will be short and simple - other than 6 red roses from my daughters, grandchildren and myself there will be no flowers and dark colours will not be worn. This is a celebration of his life and it will be done 'his way '
