Mike planned his own funeral and it may sound odd but it was a lovely send-off. Both his son and I managed a tribute and I read the lesson. My nephew, Paul, took the service. Lots and lots of friends and relatives attended and many came back to our home afterwards.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for us. I am convinced that this was why he lived so much longer than the oncologists predicted.

We had less than four years together but the time was very precious. As I said in my tribute: ‘he rescued me from sadness’ after Alan’s death.

Very few women have the love of two wonderful men in their lives. I have been blessed.
