Dear Hannah,
Many thanks for the care and consideration you all gave in making Mum’s “send off” a dignified but uplifting occasion. She would have approved of the simplicity, she was never one for ostentatious departures!
As much as I enjoy your company, let us hope we can leave a few years or even a few decades before we meet again under the heading “Funeral Directors.”
My best wishes to you all and long may the Carpenter family be supplying such a wonderful service in the shadow of tragedy.
