This last weekend we went to stay with my brother and his wife who live just outside Stafford. My mother and grandmother had lived in a granny annex adjoining their property until they passed away 9 and 36 years ago respectively. I finally managed to get my brother to organise the interment of their ashes and the service took place on Sunday morning. They now rest together under a spreading chestnut tree, which was planted some years ago  in the church grounds, by my brother. It was a lovely service and good to catch up with my two brothers whom we see too infrequently.
This card is to thank my brother and sister-in-law for their hospitality for the weekend and for organising the occasion so fittingly (if extremely tardily).
