Today was Bob’s funeral.

In as far as it’s possible, it was lovely: There were over a hundred people at the crematorium, including at least ten cachers and the same number of hospital radio people. Bob’s long-time best mate Stuart said some lovely things about him, and the service ended with Monty Python’s “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, which everyone agreed that Bob would have thought hugely funny.

I was going to make today’s blog a tribute to Bob telling you all what sort of person he was, but I can’t: Those of you who knew him, knew him too well to need my words. For anyone who didn’t know him, I couldn’t possibly sum him up in the length of a blog.

So I’ll just say: Bob – a very special, decent man. It’s a privilege to have known him, and I’m proud that he was my friend.
