I recently lost a friend to Motor Neurone Disease. I found the funeral officiated by Alison Ann, to be very moving. I observed her comforting family members before the coffin arrived, including Lynn’s daughter and one of her sisters.
She conducted the service with compassion and dignity, recounting some of Lynn’s early days, her love of her family and her battle with a dreadful disease.
What I found especially poignant that at the end of the funeral, was when everybody had left, Alison laid a rose on the coffin, and blew a kiss to Rebecca, Lynn’s youngest daughter (via the Zoom link), who lives in Australia and could not attend due to Covid. Thank goodness for new technology.
