    I confess, I’ve never heard before the name of Philip Gould. Today I visited Highgate Cemetery , stood at his grave in a gorgeous position and admired a beautiful work of art positionated there. I first made some investigation in internet and read a lot of things about Mr. Gould, he was a very interesting, intelligent man. Now I also want to know, who is the sculptor of the embraceing bronze couple.

    Just came across this on Youtube and thought you might have blogged about Philip Gould. You have probably watched it already but thought I’d put it up just in case you haven’t! Inspiring.

    I throughly enjoyed reading this post. As an Independant Funeral Celebrant I meet may families that have lost a loved one and try to help them create a fitting tribute to their loved one. One thing I am sure if many of us could spare some time with our loved one to discuss death before we die we would make plans to celebrate and remember loved ones to pay tribute and give thanks for the life we have lived and shared with so many. A truly inspirational piece and I think it gives us all food for thought on where we may like to plan our funeral or where and how we would like to honour and celebrate our life and death, Thank you
