A few have asked to see the order of service I created for my Gramps. I am so proud I got to do this for him. He loved my mums, so I am sure he would have loved his. Although that feels weird saying that. My aunty said I should go into business. Order of Service. High demand apparently. And it cost only £30 to get printed where as with the funeral home we were looking at over £80 for their design etc . It actually does anger me how expensive things are for funerals. £70 for a small bunch of Calla Lilies. Ridiculous. Money grabbing bastards.
So yes, here it is.
The piece of music all of us 18 grandchildren chose to be played was a piece of music by Pink. Quite surprised that it’s actually a beautiful song. Not the sort of person you would have thought would ever be played at a funeral. Even the Rev was shocked and he said it was such a beautiful song he will play it at one of his things he does on a Sunday. It went over my head.
Very beautiful. And was perfectly fitting. He has a great send off. He was a great man, my Grampy.
