If you read our previous post you know of the passing of bassist Hugh Hopper. Information about the details of his funeral have been released by his wife Christine:
Hugh’s funeral will be on Thursday 25th June at 10am at Deerton Natural Burial Ground, which is situated close to the village of Teynham, in Kent (postcode: ME9 9LL).
It will be a Tibetan Buddhist Ceremony to respect Hugh’s wishes and there will be opportunity for a few musicians to play by the graveside to say goodbye. Afterwards there will be lunch at a local pub and then a gentle walk. From 5pm we will gather at the Oyster Building, which is on the seafront in Whitstable, where musicians are welcome to play.
No flowers please; however, donations offered will be shared between the Brabourne Ward at Canterbury Hospital and the Kangyur Rinpoche Foundation.
Do not cry because I die
Do not cry as I am
Drifting alone on the
Seashore of light
Rejoice in the light of love, my love
Into the pure light above
The Rainbow light where
I am free of suffering
From me to Hugh and all his great friends and family.
