Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for being the organist and pianist at the funeral of my late brother during Holy Mass at St Patrick's Catholic Cemetery Chapel in Leytonstone.
I am grateful for your understanding when we had to postpone the funeral by one week.
Thank you so much for your time and expertise in assisting Jackie and me in finalizing the Order of Service and the selection of hymns, both in English and our native language, Luganda.
You arrived at the Chapel 90 minutes before the official start for choir practice and setting up.
At the reception held at The EpiCenter, your performance with my 10-year-old son Vincent, 13-year-old daughter Clarice and 13-year-old nephew Andre (all with their violins) was wonderful.
The guests applauded enthusiastically when you and the children played together:
Somewhere over the rainbow (Wizard of Oz)
Bless the Lord, my soul (Taizé)
Jesus, remember me (Taizé)
I am happy that you too enjoyed the event since you stayed for the duration of the reception and integrated smoothly with the Ugandan community that lives in the UK.
I will definitely use your services again, next time at a joyful occasion, I hope!
