"I like your suit says my 20 year old grand-daughter". I realise that she had never seen me in a suit. "I used wear one every day," I say,"when I went to the office." It is 21 years since I stopped attending an office on a regular basis. Next I find myself explaining what an office is. Times they are a-changing.
Whose is that familiar face which I see outside the chapel while waiting to enter? It dawns on me that it is our GP, Nick Benson, who retired a year so so ago. "I saw the notice in the paper," he says. "So I thought I'd come." He looked after Heidi and me for several decades so I suppose I should not be surprised. We always got on well but we sometimes wondered about the extent of his dedication to the world of healing.
