My private Harvest Thanksgiving

Thursday 4th September 2014
A few of the sixteen pounds of Victoria plums that I picked in a few minutes after today's funeral
This must have been the first time that I have ever been handed a teddy whilst saying the Prayer of Commendation over the coffin.   I held him as we prayed a farewell to great-grandma; but just as I started to pronounce the Blessing, Freddy said "Want him back now" and I came as near to laughing during a funeral blessing as I ever have.
