Boat of Garten to Jimmy Simpson’s funeral.

Today is a sad day as I go to my friends funeral in Boat of Garten, I have written about Jimmy Simpson in my Blog and also had so many friends reply, many thanks to all. We all will meet up today below the Cairngorms where he worked, loved and played with his family and friends to celebrate a good man, who we will all miss.   Jimmy Simpson RIP.

Jimmy Simpson on the hill thanks to all for the kind words.

It was standing room only in the hall as the Church was full at Boat Of Garten long before the funeral started. The ” Boat”  was so busy with cars parked  all along the road. It was great to see so many pay respect to Jimmy. It was a fine service with many characters from the Family,Police,Mountain Rescue, SARDA and so many local friends. There were so many in Gillie suits it was a colorful funeral and the words spoken were from the heart. Great stories that summed up the man. The family lost some man a father, grandfather, husband and the Highlands a real character.

    Such a sad day for the family and close friends of Jimmy, I met him first as a young lad and thereafter a few time a year when I made the long journey up north the fantastic highlands. God Bless.!
