The Strachan Family.
Thank you so much every one at dignity for making such a sad time for for family with loss of a wonderful husband, dad and papa less stressful, very much appreciated.
The funeral service went very well, as did the reception afterwards, and I have had follow-up advice on how to proceed with the disposal of the ashes.
Although there were restrictions in place because of covid it did not take anything away from the service we had at the crematorium.
