"The botanic gardens have said to his parents that if we specify the area Martin liked best, the monkey tree, I think its called, they will try and put the bench in sight of that. Any left over monies from the bench can be donated to the botanical gardens, who will use it to plant an area not already planted and send us a notice to tell us what we planted. His parents would like a copy of that notice."

I would like to be at the funeral. Is anyone else going who would like to go together?

I should note that I am also a fan of the Araucaria.

I think they're splendid things. Some friends of my parents had one in front of their farmhouse halfway up a semi-wooded hillside, and it was very striking in that setting, amongst ordinary things like like larch and oak trees.

The charities were:

  • Mind (National Association for Mental Health) http://www.mind.org.uk, and
  • Cogwheel (I think this is http://www.cogwheeltrust.org/)
