Thank you from Hilary Gilby

Dear Friends and Musicians,
I'd like to thank all those who attended Mike’s funeral.
Cullercoats RNLI tell me Mike’s friends raised £225 with their kind donations. Perhaps it’s wrong to single anyone out in particular, but I would like to say a big thank you to the members of the Customs House Big Band and to Peter Morgan, who presented the band’s generous donation. Thanks to all of you who made the huge effort, during some particularly bad weather, to pay your last respects to Mike. On behalf of the whole family: your presence helped make a very sad day more bearable.
Wishing you love, joy and peace,
Hilary.
