After our previous post on Dr Craig Brown, we received the news that he passed away on Tuesday the 10th of March. The family told us he was so peaceful and they managed to care for him at home until the end, which was his wish. His funeral was held on the 6th of April at Worthing Crematorium, but given the current circumstances it was a small service attended by close family only. Craig’s family are hoping to arrange a ‘Celebration of Life Ceremony’ for him in the summer. The family have also informed us of two charity pages, set up in his memory, should you wish to donate to either of them:
St Barnabas Hospice: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/craigbrownstbarnabas
Cancer Research: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/drcraigbrowncancerresearch
Thank you to everyone who contributed to his “blessings album”. Sarah Eagger and Jan Alcoe managed to visit him in his final weeks and he was so deeply touched by it and had it on display to share with whoever visited. I am sure you join us in sending loving thoughts to him and his family as he continues his soul journey.
He was a true, dear friend of Janki Foundation, contributing to and participating in so many projects, retreats and events. His enthusiasm and creativity will be greatly missed.
Craig wrote this poem, which was read at his funeral.
Send me your love
When you think of me, send me your love.
Grieve if you must, but not for long.
Judge me with forgiveness and remember the good times
Help me pass on easily, by sending me your love.
My body has served me well, and my soul is eternal
Think of me as a bright star in space
Breathe in Natures peace and send me your love
Hold it in your very being
And now breathe out and let me go.
