The funeral arrangements for Jill have now been finalised. This will take place at Barham Crematorium at 2.40pm on Tuesday 31st March 2015. There will be tea and sandwiches available after this at nearby Broome Park for those that want to stay on.
Jill’s husband Grahame has confirmed that this is an open invite to any colleagues of Jill’s from the University that would like to attend. I said I would co-ordinate attendance from the University so he can have an idea of numbers for catering purposes, so please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jill in her own indomitable way had specified that she would like this to be a celebration of her life and had asked that the following be observed:
- That there are no flowers; and
- No wearing black.
If anyone would like to make a donation in her memory, these can be made to Pilgrims Hospice, who treated her with such kindness in the last few weeks of her life. You can do this here: http://www.pilgrimshospices.org/donation/donate.
Whilst Grahame has asked that flowers are not sent to his home, condolence cards can be sent to him. Karen Khan has kindly offered to take these cards round to Grahame’s home, so please feel free to forward them to her.
