Sadly, one part of my work is conducting funerals. This recent funeral was particularly sad in that it was in May 2016, I married the deceased. He had just had a major operation for cancer and whilst we were all hopeful, unfortunately, he succumbed to his illness in January.
He loved his John Deere tractor and had this coffin made for him with it. His final journey from the village hall to the cemetery was by his beloved tractor and trailer. Whilst a sad occasion, his funeral was not a sad event. He was an outgoing person and the stories told by friends and myself brought out much laughter. It was a happy ending to an all too short life.
