Today is Beatrice's funeral. Could I ask that you all, please, try to spare a moment at 11am and think about them all. I will be there dressed in red and wearing sequins as Cup asked us all to wear bright sparkly outfits, to give her beautiful girl a wonderful send off. Thank you. X
It was a beautiful service. A packed church filled with love. The Glenfield Trust came and played and sang, which was just beautiful. There were lovely heartfelt readings and uplifting hymns. Then we went outside and released 403 pink and purple balloons up into the sky, one for each day of her life.
I was glad to have been there to share and to give thanks for a wonderful little girl who had touched the hearts of so many people.
Thanks for telling us about the service SallyBear - it sounds so beautiful. And how amazing to realise 403 ballooons to commemorate Beatrice's precious year, month, week and day. I'm so glad the Teaset got to do that. I hope that as well as the inevitable sadness of the day, they have also created special memories today with their wonderful celebration of a life full of love and fully lived.
I will be lighting my candle for Beatrice this evening as I'll be at a church service.
