Simon Edwards RIP – Funeral & Shiva Announcement

With great sadness the first Newsletter of this year is a very sad one. It is dedicated to my beloved husband Simon Edwards who passed away on the morning of Sunday 21 January.

It has been a 3 year journey of the cancer illness. Through the hard times we were grateful for all of the amazing moments that it was possible to share together. Simon was a real hero in how he had managed to work until the last week of his life and still motivate people. 

It’s hard to comprehend when people say that you are never truly prepared for this moment and sadly I have a deep understanding of what they mean now, especially as he was a big part of my monthly  newsletters. 

It’s just so hard to believe, but for him I will stay strong and continue his legacy in every way, in the way he behaved, the way he listened, the way he loved.


A funeral service for this great man will take place at Hoop Lane Crematorium London NW11 7NL on Sunday 28 January 2018 at 11:00 am.


Shiva will follow immediately after the funeral between 13:00 -19:00 at Westminister Synagogue, Kent House, Rutland Gardens, Knightsbridge, London SW7 1BX where Simon converted to Judaism. There will be refreshments and prayer together.

Rather than bringing flowers on the day, we suggest you support Simon’s work and legacy by making a donation to MIND MEASURING:
