Tomorrow we are heading south for Sidney’s funeral. This will provide the occasion for a rare family get-together but in rather sad circumstances.
I have been asked to say a few words about Sidney at the funeral, something I regard as a privilege. Sidney was – is – loved by us all and we shall cherish his memory. It is this that we shall emphasize at the funeral.
Unfortunately, I have done something to my back and can move only with difficulty. Sitting down and getting up out of the chair is already painful. Tigger’s sister was supposed to be taking us down in her car but I foresee problems with my back in a small car. Instead we shall travel by train and be picked up at the station to keep car travel to a minimum.
The funeral is to be a humanist one. I am not sure what that entails and will be interested to see.
