Thank you for all the messages of condolence and poems dedicated to Viv. We know that many of you are scattered around the world and it is heartening to know that her blogging presence has spread so widely and is so much appreciated. Some of you who are closer at hand have already asked about funeral arrangements. This will be held on Wednesday 20 July at West Road Crematorium in Newcastle upon Tyne at 1:15pm. Some of you will have met her, others may only have done so via her online activities but anyone who would like to come along, and is able to do so, would be most welcome. We will follow the funeral with some light refreshments at a location still to be arranged. Please, if you would like to come along, leave us a message so that we can have an idea of numbers.
Viv specifically asked for no flowers but that any donations be given to cancer research. If anyone does feel that they would like to make a donation we have set up a Just Giving page for this.
