Simon Says Stamp DT - Little Tilda

Hello peeps,
It's been a busy couple of days here, Jake had a beautiful send off yesterday, the sun shone, lots of motorbikes made his last journey with him & hundreds of people went to his funeral. The start had to be delayed while the crematorium staff were rushing around setting up loud speakers outside in the gardens so the people who couldn't get inside could still hear the service as there was just no way everyone could fit inside.
This afternoon I have had a house full all awaiting heading off for a ride to the beach in Jake's memory. Jode & hubby have gone on his bike & the group who left from here looked lovely wearing special polo shirts over their jackets which Jodie has been busy organising with Jake's name and dates of his life on the back which I think was such a lovely gesture and also good as it has kept her busy.

It's time to get down to business as I'm so late with my post, I've been typing it over a couple of days as pins & needles in my arm is driving me nuts & I intended finishing it this morning but with the hoards arriving I didn't get chance.
