GOODBYE DAVE....

Dave Davies..... 1938 - 2008...you were a loveable old bugger, I will miss you.

Today: well it's going to be full on with getting everything ready for Dave's funeral, then attending the funeral at 2pm.

I don't expect to be able to blog again till late tonight, if at all.

I hope you all have a lovely day. ....... ONWARD....

End of Day: well the funeral went off without a hitch, Chris D was a bloody trooper and made it through the day so well. Dave was brought home for a couple of hours before we went to the service... it was quite nice to know he was back in his home for a while. We all got to say 'Goodbye' in our own time, in our own way. I found the day emotionally tiring, but not bloody awful.

Spent the evening with Chris D, and Mike and Abby came around for dinner too. Kebabs.... oooo yum. .... nite nite.
