Saying goodbye to Gerald Angell, son of a brother of my Dad’s mother.
He died of complications from a lung disease contracted through working in dirty nooks of offices and factories, maintaining telecoms equipment as a post office engineer.
He’d developed a little catch phrase for those last 10 years when perhaps he couldn’t do what others were doing.
Beyond his family, his deepest love was deep sea fishing – he and he brother-in-law had a boat in Aberystwyth.
The funeral – as always – a time for fond memories, favourite songs and a poem read beautifully by his cousin, talking to Gerald’s wife Do.
“Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”
