Dan Duells send off was one the Army should be very proud of. After an extremely moving service at Wimbourne Minster, with tributes from his two sons Oliver and Alex, whom he would of been very proud of. His friends also made tribute to Dan and moved everybody in there, they played the last post, and had 21 gun salute. Dan and his dad would have been up there loving every minute of it, it was a service fit for the humble , gentleman my brother was. It was an extremely tough day for his mum, she is 81, and not prepared to bury one of her children,at one point we didn't know wether we should turn back as she was getting more poorly as the journey went on, considering it took almost 7 hours to get down to dorset. She coped very well , Dan would have been proud of her stamina. I was hoping that she would have received some of the flowers people had promised they were sending as this would have meant a great deal to her, and would have gone some way to helping her cope . But I guess with the momentum of life, things don't go as hoped. I must say the one thing that ruined it for my mum and the me was that his ex wife was there with noseemingly sense of remorse at all, well I knew she wouldn't but mum didn't realise who she had turned into since cheating... sorry not the place to bring this up but dan would understand....I hope .
