Message of thanks from Ivor Facey’s family

Earlier this summer Ivor Facey, one of our popular teachers very sadly died.  Ivor's family are incredibly grateful for the support  shown to them by the Georgian family during this difficult time, and would like to thank you all personally with these kind words: 

 

We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the Georgian community for taking us under your wing at this most painful of times.  To those who visited our home, attended the funeral and memorial service, and provided emotional and practical support,  to those who telephoned, travelled long distances, sent floral tributes, cards and messages of condolence, as well as those who made charitable donations, we are truly grateful.  Your contributions made our loss more bearable.  As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our deepest gratitude.

Now the dust has settled, we can reflect on what an amazing farewell we were able to give our beautiful soul Ivor.  Not only a fitting tribute to Ivor, but a wonderful reflection of yourselves: The embodiment of true Christian values.  We will never forget the feeling of being enveloped by the love and support of the community at both services, and how heart-warming it was to learn how much Ivor  had touched so many of your lives in his own inimitable way.
So, as life carries on and we try to come to terms with the harsh reality of his physical absence, he remains firmly with is in spirit – willing us on, wanting us to be the best that we can be.  We hope some of you will find inspiration on his philosophy on life (as we do), but most of all, when you think of Ivor…SMILE
With love and thanks

Katherine & Mary Facey
