Goodbye Pal

Just been to the memorial service held at the football ground for Mark Philo. Incredibly moving tributes from players, managers and most of all his father. Seeing Mark's kit and boots being handed over to his family made me cry like nothing else has done for a long time.
Also at the service we sung a different (to me ) version of amazing grace. After the first two verses, instead of singing 'twas grace that bought me safe this far' we sung the following:

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

Yes when this heart and flesh should fail,
and mortal life shall cease
I shall possess, within the veil
a life of joy and peace.
