Myself, Jennifer and Laura would like to thank all who attended Rab's funeral. To those of you who couldn't attend due to this horrid virus we know you were thinking of us and we wish you well. We couldn't have gotten through this without the support of my own and Rab's family, so thank you. You're all amazing. Thank you also to Mitchell's Funeral Directors who's care of Rab, dedication, compassion and attention to detail was outstanding.
