I think, normally, that I wouldn't write here about a funeral. They are very personal experiences. But I have to tell you this because you were a key part.
The chap who conducted the service mentioned that Janet was a blogger and that our community had been a comfort to her family; indeed, he had a handful of pages that were printed from the messages of condolence that you left at this blog after I posted a few words. He read a couple - from Annie and Shaz - stories that her family would otherwise not have known, and stories that went a long way to reinforce Janet's memory as a kind and fun woman with a passion for her crafts and life in general.
|We did what we always do when visiting Janet, had coffee and cake.|
And that, gentle reader, is probably the only and the best reason to blog. We're all in this together and we all want to be friends first.
