Memories are made of this . . . celebrate the lives of loved ones!

This weekend saw the celebration of Cliff Coxon’s life with the annual petanque tournament.  Brothers and Sister alike compete to take home the much coveted “I’m Brilliant" trophy.  The trophy was hand carved, by Mum, Joan Coxon, from a piece of Yew wood from our garden and the boules on the top belonged to Cliff.

For those of you who don’t know, Cliff was the inspiration behind from you to me. As he was nearing the end of his life we realised that all his memories and stories would be lost.  He was also a great lover of petanque so this celebration is appropriate on both accounts.

2013 is the 8th year we have held this event and it is amazing how time flies. It was lovely this year that some of the younger generation helped out with the scoring and the presentation to the winners. It is wonderful to catch up and everyone already has a date in their diary for next year.

Well who won? . . . I am delighted to say that Neil and I recovered the trophy from Sister Sandy and Colin.
How do you celebrate the lives of you loved ones?
