Paul and St Sarkis

Yesterday we headed off early to London to attend the funeral of Jo’s husband, Paul had Alzheimer’s for some years and had been in a home, so it was a merciful release. Jo was Sue’s mother’s school friend, and they attended our wedding in 1973. We bumped into them on our honeymoon in the Lake District where we had tea with them. We kept in touch over the years, visiting them in their flat in Kilburn during our leaves from Saudi. Paul was known for his wonderful curries, and we learned during the service that these originated from his childhood in India. Paul was Armenian in origin and the service was held at St Sarkis Church, Kensington, where a wonderful singer treated us to hymns in that language.
