About the Book:
Inspired by real events, this book takes you on a journey of joy, loss and heartache through life's three certificates. It is, ultimately, a love story.
One Unexpected Birth: The long road to fatherhood. Missed opportunities, poor choices, a car ride with Bet Lynch, and finally the shock of becoming a dad. A story of heartache, elation, and Peter Beardsley.
One Hapless Wedding: The pressures of matrimony. Inept friends, false promises, an encounter with armed police, and finally the relief of "I do." A story of love, commitment, and a stranger, Wally, and his camper van.
One Bizarre Death: The sadness of loss. Confused emotions, life re-evaluation, £25k in ceased bank notes, and finally saying goodbye. A story of regret, family reflection, and Morrisons, the supermarket.
A book to stir the memories in us all.
The realisation that we have all been certified.
Excerpt from the book:
“Craig took the urn out of the bag and climbed onto the top of the rock. We all gathered around, the rain beginning to worsen and the cold starting to infiltrate our attire.
“Rest in peace, Dad,” shouted Craig, as loud as he could. “I hope you will protect us in death, in a way you failed us in life.”
Not quite the sermon I had envisaged.
He lifted the lid and began to shake the ashes out. Unfortunately, with spectacular timing, that was the moment the wind decided to return. It had also decided that it didn’t fancy going in just one direction. A swirling one was required, just as Dad’s dust was released.
This is another moment which is hard to describe and, blimey, there have been a few. His ashes blew all around us. The majority seemed to cover Craig, who was now screaming and frantically brushing his coat and hair with his hands, but it also started to land on the tiny congregation down below, which included yours truly. As my mouth had automatically opened in shock at the unfolding events, so the dust entered it. I was spitting furiously, scraping my tongue with my fingers.
Looking around me, I stood traumatised. To my left, Bonnie was leaping in the air catching and swallowing fragments of Dad, having the time of her life. To my right, Mum seemed to be protected by the giant umbrella whilst Charlotte was giggling away, desperately trying to catch as many bits as possible, grabbing the black snow. Her pink Peppa Pig bobble hat was getting darker by the second and I suddenly realised that Dad would be visiting us after all.”
