The sheer number of people who have paid tribute following the sad news of the passing of Bill Shaw has been heartwarming, and many have expressed their desire to attend his funeral – well, Bill’s wife, Lynn has been in touch to give further details, including the details of the function afterwards.
The funeral takes place this Wednesday, 28th March 2018, at 11.15am at The Heart of England Crematorium, Eastboro Way, Nuneaton, CV11 6WZ.
My best wishes to Lynn, family and friends – I never met Bill in person but I counted him as a friend and loved his work and sheer spirit. Best wishes, and my thoughts will be with you all on Wednesday.
I’d like to thank everyone who paid tribute for their kind words: It’s meant a huge amount, particularly to Lynn and Bill’s family. My heart goes out to those feeling the loss of Bill. This blog just isn’t going to be the same without him.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone for their messages of condolence and support.
I’m truly moved at the amount of people expressing their wish to attend Bill’s funeral, to anyone wishing to pay their final respects, his funeral will be held on 28th March 2018, at 11.15am at The Heart of England Crematorium, Eastboro Way, Nuneaton, CV11 6WZ.
I have recently spoken to Ivor who has told me that people will be travelling by car rather than coach from Walsall Wood. I have given him the details for reception afterwards but I don’t know if everyone will know. It will be held at SAPCOTE CLUB, 19 HINCKLEY ROAD, SAPCOTE, LEICS.. LE9 4FS. There will also be a memory book for anyone who would like to leave a personal message or memory of their time with Bill.
Anyone wishing to send flowers please send to G. Sellers. 75 Upper Bond Street. Hinckley… Or make a small donation in his memory to The Air Ambulance .
Again, my deepest and most heartfelt thanks, Bill would be very touched.
