Ronnie wanted lots of music for his funeral but what he DIDN’T want was for me to talk about his life.

Fiona had no funeral. Instead she donated her body to train a new generation of doctors.
Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, soil to soil
It’s time to rewrite the Book of Common Prayer.
