Elizabeth, like many on this forum, we have never met. However, at times like this, that doesn't matter. I'm so dreadfully sorry for your loss of Phil. There are no words that will comfort you, I'm sure. But, just hang on to all of those wonderful memories you'll share.
Well the funeral is past now, Phil had a great send off , family , neighbours and many of his work collegues came, his friends from his local , who put up a beautiful brass plaque in his memory, right above his usual seat where he liked to sit.
After the funeral tea, everyone moved on to the local , to see the plaque , and then the party started, as Phil was a contactor and knew lots of people, those who could not make the funeral , came to the pub after they finished work. along with many others who could not make the funeral, I left at tea time as our family were going back to Scotland that evening , but I sent my daughter and her partner back round, and she said everyone was having a great time remembering her dad and singing his favourite songs and they were still signing as the landlord called time. (So was the landlord with all the money he took) Phil would have been chuffed to bits and would have loved the send of his friends gave him.
I sit here smiling and remembering them all and how they helped me to get through the day with all their happy memories of Phil.
Having said that, I was not a bit surprised as you are both lovely people which is reflected in the caring being shown to you. In both you and Phil's case the saying 'you get back what you give', could not be more true.
