My dear Friends,
Once again I find it imperative to write to you all to say a VERY BIG thank you on behalf of Nancy and myself, for such a wonderful and powerful Memorial Service for Betty. Just where to start is going to be a dilemma, although so saying, it has to begin with Rob.
Rob orchestrated the eventful evening as well as conducting such a special time to celebrate Betty’s long association both with Spiritualism and in particular our ‘Little Church’.
All the beautiful hymns were amongst the favourite ones that Betty would often sing or hum around the house and were also a testament to Betty’s unassailable Christian faith and belief.
Les bravely opened the affirmation of the love that surrounded Betty, whilst Alan spoke of her commitment to truth and honesty of purpose. Mary, Judith and Barbara gave beautiful readings that, in many ways, epitomised Betty’s love of poetry and literature. Steve demonstrated the depth to which Betty had schooled within her circle and brought out abilities that were not obvious before. Steve’s opening prayer and Lynne’s closing prayer were both inspirational and beautiful.
I know that Betty was looking down on us and enjoyed every minute of the tributes and especially the laughter, although she would be saying ‘who the dickens are they talking about’. “I only carried out that which God inspired me to do and any one could have sat in my shoes and done the same”.
The evening ended with tea, coffee and some beautiful cakes that were enjoyed by all of those that attended. Thank you to everyone that provided the food and not to forget the very beautiful flowers that Betty would have loved.
Mine, and Nancy’s love, goes to you all with grateful thanks for a very lovely and memorable evening.
May each of you receive God’s richest blessing.
My dear Friends,
