Jean (my mother-in-law)
3rd September 1923 - 25th February 2016

The last few weeks have been difficult, as you can imagine, especially for Adrian and his sister Elaine.  We were all aware that Jean was extremely frail, with a host of health problems, and we had in fact been told before Christmas that she could die at any time.  Nevertheless, in the end her passing happened so quickly that it caught us all by surprise.  I have known Jean since 1982 and although she and I were never close, it still feels odd that she is no longer with us.

Both the funeral directors and the civil celebrant were so very kind and compassionate, which helped Adrian and Elaine greatly with all that had to be planned and sorted out.  Kailah, the civil celebrant, wrote a lovely eulogy for Jean and the funeral service was a fitting tribute.
