Funeral for a Friend

I've been noticing in my web statistics that a lot of people are hitting my blog, searching for news on Richard's death.

In the hope that anybody reading this is a friend or former student of Richard, wishing to pay their respects; I thought I could help by letting people know about the funeral details.

The service will begin at 11am, this Saturday at St. Nicholas Church, Alcester. Attendance is expected to be extremely high, so the service will also be relayed outside through loudspeakers.

The town will likely be swamped with traffic and I have heard it said that some of the local schools will be opening up their car parks in order for people to be able to park.

In the coming days, I hope to link this post to any obituaries or biographies that are out there. Perhaps if you have seen any, you could advise me or leave a link in the comment field.

Also, I would be honoured if people want to use this place... any of the relevant entries to post their own feelings, memories and thoughts, for others to read.
