When you lose someone you love, it can feel important to mark who they were as a person and what was important to them. Now a special dedication space has opened to enable you to pay tribute to someone who loved the RAF and all it stands for.
“It will be the anniversary of my Dad’s passing in a few days,” says Susan Speight, whose father Ken served in the RAF. “I have just requested a dedication, and sent in a photo of Dad and his colleagues with their Halifax aircraft. I know he would be very happy that I’m doing this. It’s so hard to mark such anniversary appropriately, but this year I think is pot on.”
The dedication space is hosted by the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund for the benefit of the RAF Family – serving and veteran personnel, and their friends and relatives.
“For many people, serving in the RAF, was a life-shaping experience, with an intense camaraderie that would never be repeated again,” says Kate Galbraith, the Fund’s In-Memory Manager. “So it felt fitting to give their families a place where their loved one and something that mattered to them deeply, could be celebrated.
“It’s really easy to set up a dedication page, but if anyone is daunted by doing this online, we are more than happy to set it up for them. It is the least we can do when this is for someone who served their country.”
