Hello all,

This is my first post on this forum, and I assure you I am not snooping. I just wanted to pass on my gratitude on behalf of my family.

Today my nan informed me of the kindness and generosity of you all in aid of my aunts funeral. I cannot put into words how overwhelmed we all are. You are wonderful people, and we all know you had a special place in Cheryl's heart.

I'd like to leave you with the poem I have chosen and will be reading tomorrow:

Think of me as one at rest,
For me you should not weep,
I have no pain, no troubled thoughts,
For I am just asleep.
The living, thinking me that was,
Is now forever still,
And life goes on without me now,
As time forever will.

If your heart feels heavy now,
Because I've gone away,
Dwell not long upon it friend,
As none of us can stay.
Those of you who liked me,
I sincerely thank you all,
And those of you who loved me,
I thank you most of all.

And in my fleeting lifespan,
As time went rushing by,
I found some time to hesitate,
To laugh, to love, to cry.
Matters it now if time began,
If time will ever cease.
I was here, I used it all,
And now I am at peace.

X

Thank you Abigail! I am so sorry that I cannot be there tomorrow to represent how much Sundae meant to us. You will have got a sense of that from this thread. X
Dear Dwellars!
I spoke to Sundae's mum on the phone today and when I told her that the Cellar had contributed 1,250 (around USD 1,400) in Sundae's memory she was overwhelmed. I did express the Cellar wish to help with funeral expenses but Sundae's mum was adamant that the money should be donated to the mental health charity, MIND.
I will do this via the funeral directors and will let you all know the total raised in around three weeks time.
Sundae's mum has said she will send me the order of service and given me permission to share it with you all.
I offered to collect up the Cellar memories and tributes (in this thread and the one that IM started) and send them to Sundae's mum - I hope this will be OK with you guys.

Thank you, Abigail. You're done us a great service, and honored Sundae in in a manner she would have loved.

Dear Abigail

I am almost always happy to welcome new members to the cellar. I'm happy to do so now. I *never* do so through a veil of tears. I'm happy to do so now. Sundae was a huge part of the cellar family when she was an active poster, and I am certain she'll remain a huge part of the cellar family in the future, though I expect her posting frequency to drop off dramatically.

I don't know what she's shared with you about us here, but I think we know some about you. Don't you have the adorable little twin boys? She loved you (and the "kittens") very much. Just stuff like that, Sundae shared with us. And around here, she was loved right back. And now you've shared your poem... well. Thanks for that. Give my love and support to your family for me, please.

Thanks for taking the time and trouble to come to us. It reminds me of her.

So nice to meet you, Abigail! Your aunt cared about you very much, and was especially fond of your two little boys. There is no such thing as snooping here, and you would be more than welcome to pop in anytime you like. Thank you for the poem, it is a lovely tribute.

Welcome, Abigail. We all loved Cherry, and I hope you find us all amusing enough to hang around and see what Dwellars are all about.

Dear Dwellars,
I received the following account of Sundae's funeral from her mother yesterday.
Quote:
The funeral and Wake went so well. Tears and laughter. Everyone seemed to like our choice of songs, and most people wore something pink in her memory. Her Godfather, was wonderful and said such moving words in his eulogy. It proved how well he knew her.
Her brother's tribute was amazing. I wish I could have taped it and sent it to you.
Over 50 people at the crematorium and nearly 30 at the Wake. ...
Her ex-husband, was there and also an ex-boyfriend who lives now at Hebden Bridge and she saw occasionally. They were both gutted. One of her bridesmaids flew in from France and went straight back to the airport after the service. 4 school friends from her school when she was aged 5-11 attended and they brought a card and a donation from themselves and 6 others that they had traced. Everyone has been so kind.

A lot of people liked her as much as we did.
