Funeral details for Hugh Hopper

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
and bright.

From me to Hugh and all his great friends and family.

Christine Hopper
