Skywatch for Jean
This week's skywatch picture is dedicated to my sister Jean. I wrote about her in this earlier post.
On Monday she was cremated at Pontefract Crematorium. The service was led by a chaplain whom Jean had met on frequent visits to the Prince of Wales Hospice. The music chosen was Charlie Rich: "Most Beautiful Girl"
The funeral was very well attended. Afterwards we all went up Marl Pit Hill to the Kings Croft Hotel next door for refreshments. The photograph is taken from the hotel carpark looking at a field of poppies inside the crematorium grounds. In the far background can be seen the TV mast at Emley Moor.
The weather was beautiful. On our way home we stopped briefly at Wessenden Head - see my haiga on Summer Haiku 2008.
Listen to and enjoy the music.
Please note that comments are not compulsory - please do NOT say "sorry for your loss" - I've heard it said too many times on CSI and other programmes and the words come across as a hollow and inappropriate cliche - even if well meant.
