Funeral on Thursday 8th July 2011 of Amy Logan

Posted in Funeral Anecdote, Uncategorized by sheelanagigcomedienne on July 11, 2011

I conducted the funeral for Amy Logan on 8th July at West Norwood Crematorium. I had been asked to come and meet Amy in St. Christopher’s Hospice on 23rd May as she requested to meet the celebrant who would be leading her funeral ceremony. I met two of her three children David and Lorna and we had lunch in the lovely hospice cafe. When her brother Frank and family came it was time for me to leave and I said goodbye to Amy- a very poignant moment. When I got back from our holiday in Brittany there was a message telling me that she had died.

David gave a lovely, humorous tribute to his Mum and her life and mentioned that she had spoken so positively about her impending death in a video produced by Dying Matters which you can see and also an interview with David.  Please watch it. Here is the link to it.
