Coven­try Cathe­dral fu­neral for ‘spe­cial’ Dar­ren Cum­ber­batch

Nuneaton Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE -

Dean of the cathe­dral, read out a let­ter from the Bishop of Coven­try, the Right Rev­erend Dr Christo­pher Cocksworth.

It read: “Dear Dar­ren’s fam­ily, friends and those stand­ing with you dur­ing the hard days of grief and pain. I know that your grief is very deep at the tragic loss of some­one so dear to you who has so much of life to live.

“I know your grief is made more painful by the cir­cum­stances of his death and your want to know fuller de­tails.

“You stand to­day in the ru­ins of the old cathe­dral - a place that suf­fered.

“You also stand on the site of the new cathe­dral, ris­ing from the ashes of de­spair - a state­ment in stone of the power of the light and love of God.

“I pray that you may find the hope that God gives to all who reach out.”
