Alex Novoa’s funeral

The chair of the Ben Jonson House Group attended the funeral of Alex Novoa:

I went to the funeral yesterday, along with a great many of Alex's colleagues from BEO.  The rows in front of us were full of Alex's friends and family supporting Claudia and their three children.

It was a very emotional occasion for everyone there and although the service was conducted in Spanish, it was deeply moving to witness the happiness and love so evident in the many family photographs projected onto the screen. Afterwards, candles were lit around Alex's photo and balloons with messages from those present were released into the sky.

I spoke briefly to Claudia to express the sympathy of BJH residents and she asked me to express her gratitude for the fundraising Bruce set up. It is really heartwarming to see the amount of support the fund has attracted.
