Thanksgiving Service for Graham Silver (17 Dec 2015)
By shaunefc, Dec 8 2015 01:22PM
We are sad to report the death of one of our Elders for several years, Rev’d Graham Silver, on Thursday November 26th, 2015.
He had served in Rural Mission and as Minister at two Churches, prior to moving to Egerton, following health complications. He preached monthly at Egerton Free Church (EFC) and also occasionally at local Anglican churches. He was our organist and also played the instrument a few times monthly at the two nearby Anglican Churches.
He leaves behind his dear wife, Margaret Silver, to whom we express our sympathy and love, and for whom offer our prayers. Prayers also for relatives and friends who mourn this loss of a loved one and friend.
The Thanksgiving Service will be at 11.30am Thursday December 17th, 2015, at Egerton Free Church, Chapel Lane, Egerton Forstal, TN27 9BX (view map). Service followed by a Committal and then Refreshments, all at EFC.
Floral Tributes family only, please. For those who wished to give donations in memory of Graham, he noted this to the Funeral Directors A W Court,who will help enable it. His wording was:- “Equal donations to St Mark’s Hospital Foundation for polyposis research, Ashford Pilgrim’s Hospice and Egerton Free Church.”
Another direct quote in the newspaper announcement he requested, regarding the Thanksgiving Service, says:- “No black – bright clothing requested.”
