"Dear Emma, Not something I ever wanted to do, but if there is such a thing as a perfect funeral, I believe that was it. Thank you so much for your care, support and attention to detail. All went without a hitch and was very 'rock and roll' - I think Ralph would have like it, and all those lovely things people said. I doubt if it is something one would 'recommend', but if an opportunity presents itself, I will certainly say how you and Helen made this thing happen in perfect harmony. Thank you hardly seems a worthy word but it's all I have. Very best regards."
