Ella's Funeral and Farewell

Sunday 22nd April 2012

Following the sad death of Ella at the end of last week, John and the family would like to thank everyone for their kind support at this difficult time.

They have emailed with details of the funeral arrangements as follows:

Dear Friends,

Becks, Matt, Di, Joel and I have finalised the funeral arrangements for Ella.  

The funeral Eucharist will be 12 noon next Saturday 28th  at St Winnow Church PL22 0LF on the eastern bank of the River Fowey near Lostwithiel.

And afterwards at Lerryn Memorial Hall which is a short drive away. 

Family flowers only please but donations in memory of Ella may be made at church or via the funeral director –Langmaid and Hunkin, 10 Greenbank, Polruan by Fowey, PL23 0QP. (Please make cheques payable to M Ripley memorials). The collection will be shared between St Winnow church and Matt’s medical charity- Exploring Global Health Opportunities UK.’ 

Parking is tight at church and in Lerryn so the St Winnow people would be grateful if you could car share whenever possible. 

We don’t expect you to come – but may we ask that you keep Ella and us in mind at that time and we will look forward to seeing you later. 

With love and thanks for your support over these dramatic past days,


John Halkes and family
