Fred’s Funeral

Fred's funeral was held at his home in Spain, on Wednesday 28th February. I've never been to a funeral held in someone's home before: it was very moving.

Reflecting on Fred's life, I find myself remembering his extraordinary humility and his interest in other people – both of which are to me Godly qualities.

I came across this anonymous quotation in Stephen Covey's “The Eighth Habit” the following day, which struck a chord.

“One hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account not what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.” (Anon.)

Thanks to all those who've been praying for Fred and Ann and their family, or offering other support.
