Andrew Vernon Powell

ANDREW VERNON POWELL Vernon and Christine, Sarah and Livi, Lisa and Craig would like to express their deep, heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful support, love and kindness shown after the very sudden and devastating loss of Andrew. We have been overwhelmed by the love and friendship shown to us all. Our sincere thanks to all who sent flowers, messages and cards, who visited us to express their support, thoughts and love, and for the wonderful gifts of meals and cake!, which kept us going through such a traumatic time. We also would like to thank everyone who generously donated to the British Heart Foundation in memory of Andrew. Our thanks and appreciation go to the huge number of people who attended Andrew's funeral in Dumbleton Church and to everyone who helped us on the day with their words, practical help and dignity, in making the service such a moving occasion and celebration of Andrew's life. For the beautiful singing from Mums Aloud Choir we thank you so much, for the overwhelming support from Dumbleton Cricket Club, to the Reverend Julia Hook for her guidance through such a difficult but uplifting service, and for all the love and support shown by so many friends, neighbours and colleagues. Our deep gratitude for his exceptional care and support goes to Philip Tomlins and his team at Merstow Green Funeral Home and finally a special thank you to so many people who have continually kept in touch, visited and shown great friendship, giving us all the strength to find a way forward. Andrew will be desperately missed by all of us.
