Lizzie's Funeral

The service of celebration starts at 11:30 am on Friday 9th May at St Nicholas Church, Chearsley, and we hope that as many of Lizzie's friends and acquaintances as possible will be able to attend.

After the service, you are invited to join Eric for refreshments at Manor Farm, just up Church Lane.

Parking at the church is severely limited so please park at Manor Farm - after dropping off those unable to make the 200 yard walk. The church will be clearly signposted from The Green - follow the arrows as the lanes are strictly single carriageway!

Dear Eric - I am so sorry but am unable to come to Lizzie's celebration service tomorrow. Am bed-bound and likely to be so into next week. No doubt at all that the village air tomorrow morning will be full of love and fondness for Lizzie, and i will send my own love and thoughts out through the bedroom window in Bernard's Close and across the rooftops to her and you at the church at 1130 promptly! Much love, Cath Langman x

Dearest Erica,
I'm walking in Kew. The scent of new pine fills my nostrils,the Bluebells are beginning to show around Queen Charlotte's cottage & a distant Woodpecker drums it's beat. Now leaves of the Wild Garlic scent the air & my thoughts turn to you & "brother Billy". I send my love. Here in this haven of tranquility amidst the sweet song & call of the birds dearest sweetest Lizzie is in my mind's eye as the tears fall
