A Morning Off

Had the morning off from campaigning today.  Went to a funeral instead, that of a young girl, only 26, who had been my daughters best Friend in primary school.  The beautiful old church in Wendron was absolutely full, they even needed the Police outside to sort out the traffic. The service was wonderful, and very moving.  I'm not usually a fan of power point presentations, but the slide show of her short life, set to music, had us all in tears.  I'd forgotten to bring a tissue, and why does your nose have to run as well? Reduced to wiping it on my sleeve.  Well done to Mum and Dad, it was a lovely send off. You were both very brave today, the months ahead will be hard.
