I am so sad to hear this and send you and your family my sincere sympathy. Pa was a great source of advice, humour and inspiration to all of us and he will not be forgotten.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Oh Pea, my Hospital appointment with the Surgeon that did my operation is on that day at Oxford, at 12.10......I'm going to see if it's possible to change the date. I will get back to you as soon as possible.....x

I have two commitments that day but if I can see my way around them I will try to attend. As there are two chapels there I need to make sure I attend the right service as after all this time I still only know your Dad by his pseudanym and not his real name. I guess they won't have Pa Snip listed on the schedule!. Your dad's wicked sense of humour still endures. I can just imagine the surprise on peoples faces if his casket really is adorned.with........Parsnips !

I hope you and your family are all coping. It's a difficult time for you all.

I will be there in spirit, just out of hospital and the journey from Scotland would be a trip too far.

Hi Poddington
I may well be able to attend. I'll just check over the next couple of days.
Planning a buttonhole of freshly cut chives!

I have even looked up their diary, so that I think the funeral is in Hampden Chapel.

Amersham Crematorium has a facility, or it used to have two years ago, whereby it will record a funeral service and you can watch it live online as it is happening or for up to about 7 days after the service if the funeral directors apply for a code which relatives can give to people so that they can tune in and be part of the proceedings I used this facility when I was unable to attend a funeral taking place there, and of course it's ideal for friends & family abroad who can't attend.

Would be nice if this could be downloaded to KG so that we could all watch. :( :(
