Hello my fwends.

Muvva has been so busy since hoouncle passed away. She has bin organisin da funeral and it not been easy for her. Hoouncle wants plain simple basic one wif as little money spent on it as possible. He sed to muvva dat he wud rather she kept da money he leave her for wen she gets old dan spend it on silly funeral.

Anyway she dun her best and I fink it gonna be vewy speshul and personal.

Dere a company here in Cornwall dat not like normal funeral directors. Dey not tell yoo wot yoo has to have but dey do wot yoo wants and tells dem to do, and dey very modern way of doing fings. So Muvva woz able to arrange da sort ov funeral exactly how hoouncle had wanted. Wich is impawtunt cuz it all about him.

So Muvva bin leehayzin wif dem & I fink she dun good job.

Hoouncle woz 73, an he loved The Shadows and also Mark Knopfler to name a couple ov his favwite moosic peepuls. So Muvva got dere moosic from iTunes last night onto a cd to give to da celebrante.

Da service gonna be more spiritual dan religious cuz hoouncle woznt religious but knew sumfin or sumone woz lookin afta us after we go over da bridge. So dere will be a celibrante to read da eulogy and stand out front to make sure da ceremony follows properly.

As hoouncle is carried into da chapel da moosic is The Shadows playin Apache (yoo can Google it if yooz wants to), den while da celebrant reads da eulogy (Muvva wrote it last nite an it all about hoouncles life), da background moosic will be Mark Knopfler playing da theme from da movie Local Hero, and is called Going Home. It got a sort of Scottish theme to da music an hoouncle loved Scotland very much.

Den after dat Muvva picked a very personal song by Mark Knopfler agen, especially for her and hoouncle to share. Here it iz wif da wurds. It makes us cry. But iz bootiful.

Den after dat has played hoouncle will go slowly thru da doors and curtains close behind him to The Shadows playing Atlantis.

Muvva got dis weekend to relax a bit, but got busy week nxt week. She gotta meet celebrant Monday, and funeral company lady Tuesday after she collected all da papers and death certificate from da hospital. Wednesday she got to choose da flowers and bring dem home to make up da wreath. She wanted to do it herself, cuz it be more personal and a lot cheaper! So she doing wot hoouncle wants.

She managed to get hold of ALL his old pals from wen he worked at da railway station and dey are all coming to da funeral too. She so pleased about dat.

And da pal dat bought hoouncles car iz driving her and George (dats hoouncles bestest friend) to da crematorium.

She just got to organise some sort of buffet afterwards this w/end. And den it all sorted.

It's been hard werk but its kept muvva from falling to bits.

Because yoo haf all given so much support to us at dis sad time, we want to share it wif yoo. It iz a vewy private fing we know, but Muvva has been vewy open and shared every tear drop wif yoo my fwends. Because yoo iz all speshul to us.

She an orphan now wif no fambly, well no blood fambly. She is very rich in Twitter fambly and fwends though.

Evfurryone been so kind and so fortful and wivout dere support she cud neva haf held it togevva like she haz. She sez to tell you fankoo so much, it means da werld to her.

Yoo haf all shared our pain ov hoouncle being so ill and now da loss of hoouncle. We love yoo, each and evfurry one ov yoo, so much.

We iz very blessed to haf yoo all in our lives.

God Bless yoo all
Wif lots of love
