Hello Everyone.
It's been a day of gathering our thoughts regarding our Sandie and sending her family and friends our love and friendship in the hope of giving them comfort in there loss. Sandie's looking down on us all now and wondering what's all the fuss about.
I'm happy that you all like the poems which I have posted , Carolee's poem was also lovely . I have been adding a few more names to the Condolences Booklet , I think I will leave it for a couple of days before posting it to Sandie's family just in-case some peeps would like to add to it , there might also be peeps on holiday that do not know about Sandie's passing.
Going on the remarks she touched a lot of peoples hearts , and I think her family will be very touched also when they get this booklet.

I was just telling Shaun there is a lovely photograph of Sandie on the front of the order of service and another lovely one of her and Malcolm on the back and as I said, I managed to pick up a few copies on my way ut of the chapel - people must have wondered what I was up to, so if anyone would like a copy I'll be happy to send you one

Shaun's will be in the post tomorrow

I'm the one who should be thankful cos I was lucky enough to be able to go - your copy will be in the post tomorrow Allan - snail mail owing to my dreadful technical skills - or should I say, lack of them :-D


Allan Report 2 Jul 2013 23:05

Thanks :-) :-)


Sallie Report 2 Jul 2013 23:13

Thank you so much Ann. I would have liked to have gone to Sandie's funeral but with Alun working today it just wasn't possible, I'm afraid. Glad that you found Brynmawr and the chapel without too much trouble.

Thank you again Ann.

Love, Sallie.x


Diane Report 2 Jul 2013 23:19

no more copies left now - all taken

Shaun, Allan, Diane, Sallie to get one

Have one left which I'll be taking to show Sue on Friday, if she doesn't wish to keep it I'll let someone else have it

I am glad you were able to go to Sandie's funeral, Ann, it's always nice to think of someone representing all friends and acquaintances from the boards. We have lost so many lovely people over the years and I hope they manage to get together for a Meet in another place.

I am sure the things you have done Shaun, will help bring a smile and some comfort to Sandie's family as they face life without her.

My thoughts are with them
