Subject: RE: Obit: Diane Easby [borchester echo] (2013)
I am Diane's brother. We had no sight contact for over 40 years but had communicated via email since she had the trip to hospital 2 years ago whilst I was in Afghanistan. I have, today, had full disclosure from the Coroner's Office. The lady in the flat next door had not seen her for best part of a week and informed the Police who gained access on 14 May 2013. She was certified dead at 0047 15 May. The result of the Post Mortem on 17 May was that she had suffered a massive stroke. Our mother had several and I had a minor one some years ago. Fast forward, I have arranged for a cremation at New Southgate Crematorium in Brunswick Park Road N11 for 1545 hrs Wednesday 30 October 2013. There will be no religious ceremony, as Diane had no affiliation, apart from Working Men's Clubs (CIU).
I would ask that all friends, web contacts, those who had been taken to task (a huge audience, if I remember Diane) and anyone else who knew her would be so good as to attend this event to mark her passing.
I was asked if there was any music she liked to be played during the event. I am sure that you all know much better than me (it was the 60's), so if you would bring some CDs I am sure that some could be played. I am sure that we will hear some SD!
Whilst I was in Afghanistan I thought that it was about time I tried to find out where the big sister was and to try to re-establish contact, this was achieved. However, after my return, despite many emails to her, a meeting was not to be. Hindsight is twopence a bucket.
I look forward to meeting Diane's acquaintances and to give her a good send off.
This can only happen once, so please be "on parade."
With many thanks,
