Mary died, peacefully, yesterday morning.
As you know she has been ill for several years with lung cancer and the aftermath of chemotherapy, but the onset of dementia five years ago took its eventual toll. For the last two and a half years she has lived in an excellent care home, and I am comforted by being sure she was unaware of what was happening and was not unhappy.
The ceremony will be a short non-religious service at Peterborough Crematorium on Thursday 15th February at 11.30 am.
It is requested that you do not wear mourning clothes. If you wish to make a donation to Alzheimer’s Society it will be passed on.
Afterwards, there will be the opportunity to meet, chat and have a bite at Greetham Valley Golf Club (LE15 7SN), just off the A1 north of Stamford.
You will all have happy recollections of Mary and those are what we want to remember on the day.
Just remember Mary as she was.
Alan, Simon and Liz.
