11 November: Service for Helen Cooper

leave a comment »

 Today we interred Vicky’s mum’s ashes in a service conducted at Stuartholme College of the Sacred Heart. Vicky’s father Reg was the first lay burser for the school and held that position for over ten years. When he passed away permission was granted for his ashes to be buried in the school’s cemetary. On this day we placed Helen’s ashes alongside Regs’ grave.

The service was conducted by Graham Woodward and attended by family members and Sister Rita Carroll. It will certainly add something special to Remembrance Day in the future for us all.

I made a personal video featuring excerpts of the service.
