Sponsor Laura for Cancer Research UK

Race for Life 2009

overcast 9 °C

Hello everybody. It's Laura, Lois's stepdaughter and Paul's daughter. I have entered the Race for Life event in Poole on June 28th. I want to raise as much money as possible for cancer research so they can help others who are living and dealing with cancer.
I am doing this for Lois as she requested donations to charity instead of flowers, I want to make her proud of me.

Please follow the link if you wish to donate.

Thanks. Laura x

Lois's funeral arrangements

The order of service

Basingstoke Crematorium. 09:30 Tuesday 3rd March 2009:

I've been planning (with Lois's help) the music to be played at the funeral, for those of you that can't go, look these up on youtube and you can imagine you are there with us:

1. Lois arrives to "porcelain" by Moby
2. Sally Clifton (Lois's lovely sister in law) will say a few words
3. Dave Malcolmson (my bosses gifted son) will play "I'm yours" by The script and "Dream Catch Me" by Newton Faulkener (a personal favourite of Lois's
4. Paul has chosen "Beautiful Love" by Julian Cope
5. Lois will leave us to "Wish you were here" by Pink Floyd, a tear jerker, but we played and sang this all around the world on our trip.
6. Guest depart to "Hand in pocket" by Alanis Morrissette (Lois's karaoke favourite
