George Coad - 9 Feb 03
Janette, Alan and Jeanine would like to thank everyone who gave Dad such a lovely send off at his funeral, also for the floral tributes and donations to the Royal British Legion.
The church was full to capacity including family and friends including many ex Royal Marines, bandies and buglers. Two RM Buglers from CTCRM attended and paid tribute by playing last post and reveille.
A special thanks to Gary Powell who made a wonderful tribute to Dad and brought a smile to people's faces at a very distressing time, by relating some of Dad's well known stories (most of them true!).
Thanks to the people who travelled from afar. Dad will be greatly missed by many people and not least by his immediate family.
