A Message From the Berry Family

Dear Ralph, 

Please could you extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended Michaels funeral on Thursday.  It really was a most lovely scene to arrive at the crematorium and see so many people waiting for him in the winter sunshine, and to then give him such a memorable send off into ramblers heaven.  We really were very humbled, and still are, by the care and respect in which he was clearly held.  It also was so nice for Barbara to see old friends again, especially as she can’t get out and about so much these days.

Special thanks also go to Arthur, for volunteering to say a few words and sharing some of Mike’s walking moments.  Hopefully, between us, we summed up who Dad was and what he did for us all. 

We are now looking to arrange a memorial bench to be placed along a favourite walking route, so we’ll keep you posted on what happens there.

With Kind Regards and Best Wishes to all the RC Ramblers - “keep rambling”! Mike is sure to be walking alongside, wherever you go.

The Berry family
