Whether you were able to attend in person or in spirit by watching the live stream, knowing you were there in one way or another meant the world to us, we could and did draw strength from each and every one of you.
An extra shout out goes to the company we both spent a combined total of around 40 years between us working at, while its company name has changed as few times over the years its core values has not.
The reason for the shout out is that when I contacted Andrea in HR to let them know of Sharons passing, I mentioned that we will be including Howmet fastenings (formerly Arconic, formerly Linread Northbridge) as part of the route to the crematorium, then I kind of cheekily asked if there was any way they would allow Sharon's work mates come out to see her off.
Now remember we are in a huge pandemic, and most companies have a portion of staff on furlough!
Without hesitation Andrea was like leave it with me we will make this happen, and they did, even some of those that were on furlough travelled from home to be a part of it.
So when we turned in to the road and I saw just how many colleagues lined both sides of the road it filled me with so much pride and warmth, words can not articulate how huge that was so Andrea, Todd and Paul thank you for making that happen and for each and everyone of our former colleagues xxx
So £100 went to wolf watch (I removed my email addy from the image below as I get enough spam) x
