Marilyn and Philip in 2011
It was with a mixture of joy and sadness that we said farewell to Marilyn Drew on Thursday 31st May.The Church was packed to capacity at her funeral Mass, with people whom she had touched in her life.They included a choir of nearly 120 choristers singing some of Marilyn's favourite music. After the Mass,a huge number moved to the hall to meet old friends, talk of our favourite memories of Marilyn, look at photos,and sign a book of remembrance.
There was a retiring collection for one of Marilyn's chosen charities, the Macmillan Nurses. As I write, the total is in excess of £3000,but there will also be an addition of Gift Aid. The Macmillan Nurses will benefit from all the money collected.
All our thoughts and prayers are with Philip and his family.
Thank you all and God Bless you.
P.S. 1/10/2012 The final ammount handed to The Macmillian Nurses was £3500 00
