When I retired as a humanist celebrant I thought I'd stop writing this blog, but my fascination with all things death-related prompted more posts. They're just written from a slightly different perspective, that's all. Oh, and I still do the odd one, by special request.

From a report of a trial in the Willesden & Brent Times, October 8th, 2009:
Leon Labastide, 21, known as 'Playboy' ... was shot in the back and found dying by his mother on May 23rd, 2004.
I've done funerals for murder victims but, so far, gang warfare hasn't spread to rural Suffolk.
