I hope regular visitors to my Simplicity Blog can tolerate just one final reference from me to my soccer hero George Best.
Today was a very sad day for me as the funeral took place – it was an amazing service – televised live by the BBC.
Anyone watching the coverage will - I guarantee - have had at least one moment in the service when a tear appeared. I cried at two points – one when George’s son Callum read a poem and then when George’s sister gave a touching and very moving tribute to George, her brother.
We tend to forget that although George was a sporting superstar known all over the world, he was also a member of a broken hearted family.
The great news is George is now at peace with God and soccer stadiums in Heaven will be full from now on.
