Ken & Gertie
Ken and Gertie were my neighbours. Gertie died a few years ago. Ken died a couple of weeks after my dad.
Today was Ken's funeral. Same catholic church as dad's 3 weeks ago.
Dad's funeral was a joyous affair with singing and applause and laughter! There was none of that at Ken's. It was a solemn affair. (I couldn't bear it and slipped out)
Ken was a lovely man! Gertie was a firecracker and we were always just a bit frighten of her. She looks so lovely in these old photos.
RIP Ken xxx
