    We just want to thank every single truly wonderful person that attended Dad’s funeral service. I don’t think I’ll ever forget feeling so flabbergasted when we approached the Crem., firstly to see so many cars parked and overflowing the car parks onto the roads and when we turned in, we just couldn’t believe our eyes to see so many, many people, all lined up on both sides from the entrance right up to the chapel and beyond, we were literally gobsmacked and it took my breath away! We are so very sorry that so many people couldn’t get into the chapel and all had to stand outside in the entrance foyer and outside of that. We are very sorry if we missed speaking to every person that turned up but we knew who was there and more importantly, so did my Dad! Before we got to the Crem., again, we could not get over the huge amount of friends and neighbours where Mum and Dad live, turning out to pay their respects and wave Dad off for his final time leaving home, everybody started clapping him and it was just so beautiful. Thank you all so much. We thought the day of Dad's funeral would be the saddest day of our lives but it actually turned out to really feel like a celebration of Dad’s life and it brought us comfort with so much real love for my Dad and so much love and kindness shown to us. The genuine emotion, love and support we felt from everybody was truly amazing and will stay with us forever. We realise you all made such an effort and took time out of your daily life to be with us for Dad, so many people taking time off work and travelling long distances - thank you so, so much. I know my Dad would have been absolutely over the moon and stars to realise how much he was loved and respected by all you truly good, decent and kind people - 'REAL' people, as my lovely Dad would say! We will never forget all your beautiful, kind faces and your warm hearts. I really wish I could find more words to express our eternal gratitude and love to each and every one of you. xxx
