The funeral of my father-in-law, Dougie, took place today.
The ceremony was held at Linn Crematorium at noon and was conducted in a very nice and personal manner by a lady from the Humanist Society Scotland, just the way Dougie would have wanted it. He was always very insistent he didn’t want “any of that religious shite” at his funeral.
Afterwards we went for refreshments at Cowglen Golf Club, where Dougie spent a very large part of his retirement, and the club had therefore put the flag at half mast in his honour.
There were lots of people at both events, as was fitting for a man as popular as Dougie.
In spite of the horrendous weather, I think the day was a beautiful tribute to the man and his life.
