We conducted a funeral at the beautiful Ffolt Cemetery today. The cemetery cat accompanied the whole service. I think she was attracted to Trystan Lewis’ magnificent singing. 😺

This is my Great Aunt Florence. She was finally able to come and visit our funeral home and instantly went to the piano with a huge smile on her face. She is 97 years old and her memory is perfect but she’s slowing up a little these days 😂.

She has been telling me all about her brother Tom and their grandfather Thomas William Godwin who was the local Undertaker in their home town of Nantyglo in Gwent. “Dad Godwin” and Tom were expert carpenters and would make all the coffins from scratch. Often through the night.

Thomas was my great great grandfather. I have his top hat, but it’s a little small for me.

I’m so grateful that “Flo” can still remember all of our family history. Much of it is so often lost in time. JH

Chris, Cheryl, Peter and Linda visited the lovely Nan and Sue and Dave at Denbighshire Memorial Park and Crematorium today at their open day.

Nan handed a cheque for £190,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support on behalf of Memoria for money collected from their sites through the ICCM metal recycling scheme. Such a wonderful gesture.

It’s a beautiful place run by lovely people. Thank you so much for your support.

Visiting Llanrhos Lawn Cemetery this evening I spotted the sun shining on a beautiful old memorial over the wall in St.Hilary’s Churchyard. I had to photograph it. It was warm and the birds were singing in the trees and as I looked around I realised that I was the only visitor. Before the pandemic, there would always be someone to talk to on an evening like this. Someone leaving flowers or tending a grave.

Standing there made me think of all those who are now alone. It’s been hard for all of us, but think about those who have been left alone because of Covid, and who are struggling with bereavement as well as loneliness. It’s overwhelming.

We could all do with support as we ease out of the pandemic, but many will need a little extra. Perhaps we should go out of our way to help those who are really suffering.

A letter, a call, a wave, taking time to listen. Those little things can be enough to brighten our day.
