Viv has posted her thanks for the help and support over the sad weeks following the death at 96 of her Mum, Irene.
I repeat here, for those of you who know Viv and Graham through ringing, her comments for those of you not on Facebook:
‘We had tremendous support from many friends on Monday at Mum’s funeral. Thanks to you all.
The service was marvellous as far as we were concerned – Mum would have been very humble to know that serving Police Officers – quite a number – were there to honour her by forming a guard of honour and then six of the group being pall bearers.
It certainly helped family members to have so many folk there to share the sad occasion. x x
This to my fellow ringers:
Thanks everyone for the ringing tributes for Mum throughout Monday. The ringing at Newport and at Ryde was wonderful. Thanks to David Weir, Darren Westmore and John Stock working together and going that extra mile to achieve the very best for Mum and our family. Once again, we’ve seen the ringing family providing valuable support, umprompted, just when it’s needed. Exceptional !! Thank you all.’
Here also is the quarter tribute we rang on Monday evening:
