Erik Carlsson Memorial Service – 20th June 2015 – Some highlights of the day celebrating the life of the man affectionately known as Mr Saab

A Service of Celebration and Thanksgiving for the Life of Erik Hilding Carlsson, Mr SAAB:

Hello every one , thank you so very much for your lovely words , messages and stories, I really appreciate them!

I have now got official news that we can go ahead with the Celebration of Dad’s life!!  We are holding a Memorial Service at 3pm in ‘The Church of St Mary the Virgin in Eaton Bray (LU62DP) on the Saturday 20th June, and then a meeting of “Friends” at our farm, New Cloud Farm ( we have white painted stones outside the farm gates and we are down The Rye. Keep going you can’t miss us in a proper Swedish style yellow painted wood house!) which is 1/2 a mile from the church straight after.

Please let any one know who has enjoyed Dad’s company and charm over the years , because it is truly an open house / farm!

The only stipulation is please wear smart cheerful / bright clothes and (sorry boys) if the men are wearing shirts , please, please wear a TIE!!( One of Dad’s few bug bears- he was NOT impressed with Simon Cowells attire!). 

We look forward to hearing many stories please, it is a time for my daughter’s Christina and Zara to hear and see the other side of their Grand-Dad, the “True Raconteur!”

Many thanks again.
