The days before the funeral were the worst time for me. I needed a lot of support and help and people around me.
Mick had made plans for his funeral. We had a Humanist service and the theme was “Celebrating a wonderful life”.
Mick had specifically requested no mourning clothes - definitely no suits or ties or black. He requested that we all dress as if we were going to a mate’s BBQ. He himself was wearing his favourite BBQ t-shirt, flip flops, and a pair of Bermuda shorts from one of his best buddies.
It was a remarkable day for a wonderful man – full of laughter, tears and lots of love. I don't think I have been hugged and kissed by so many people in my life.
