Family, friends and more descended upon the Coronation Hall Sunday afternoon, celebrating the lives of two pillars of the community with the sharing of stories and songs.
A few hundred visited the hall in Bristol, paying their respects to David and Rosaleen Dickson, with the latter having passed in January of this year.
The afternoon saw an event centered around an open mic, as guests were welcome to take the stage at any point to share an anecdote or strike up a chord. Their children shared stories of growing up, the importance of music to the family, and the welcoming nature of their parents.
Others shared stories of working jobs early in their careers, getting their start with the couple while working at The Equity.
