You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the friendship that you shared
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Do you know of anyone who is unable to attend worship at church
but who would welcome a printed version of the services when
these are made available by the Preacher? Please pass any
names to a member of the Worship Group.
The Ladies Fellowship meeting on Tuesday is cancelled due to the funeral of Marjorie.
Just to say a big Thankyou to all my friends at Church for all their lovely cards and kind wishes on my special birthday.

Friday Coffee Morning
We could do with a few more volunteers to expand the Duty Rota of those making and serving the coffee/tea and toast.
At the moment duty comes around every 4 weeks, but more volunteers (2 working together) would make it much less often.
Future Events – all fundraising suggestions considered.
