Sorry for your loss but, as the others have already said, sounds like you all gave him a send off he would have been proud of.

Sorry to hear your sad news -at least the send off was what we all would have wanted. 

Lost a relative not long ago who was a massive baggie but unfortunately the "other" half of the family wanted the funeral football free and got their own way. Sadly just made the whole occasion worse somehow although it seems petty putting it down in writing.

Condolences to you and yours.

PS As an aside, do you remember the name of the Minister?

That'll be Phil Thomas - Old mate from Stourbridge,big big Baggie. could tell you some very Un reverend stories about him (recent ones) but he's probably reading this so I better keep quiet! Sounds like he gave your BiL a good send off.

Sorry for your loss mate, you've done him and his memory proud. 

A good friend who was a massive Albion fan had his wake 3 in the Millichip and certainly on the day it helped to ease the pain and lift spirits.
