The funeral went well and was quite a happy event tailored to Boris, with music of Nirvana - All Apologies for the entry procession, a rousing Clash - Should I stay or Should I go, which had everyone at least tapping their feet, Morning has Broken for the hymn and departure procession to the theme from the Imitation Game, in homage to Boris's interest in Bletchley Park and Alan Turing.

There was a very pleasant wake at the Midland Hotel in Ripley with his favourite Jaipur Pale Ale on tap.  I am pleased to tell you that £351.00 was raised from donations in lieu of flowers, shared between MIND and the Padley Homeless Shelter in Derby who have also received all Boris's clothes etc.

It is still a very sad event, but tempered by good memories.

Cheers Boris!
