Netta Macintyre – quiet, peaceful family burial @Old Petty

Old Petty Cemetery, Ardersier
close to Castle Stuart and the Castle Stuart Golf Course

Yesterday (18th April) Netta was buried in Old Petty Cemetery alongside Jimmy Macintyre, her beloved husband who died in January 2011. It was a quiet, peaceful occasion with only close family present. The sun shone and it was pleasantly warm. 

The service was very sympathetically conducted by Rev. Catherine Buchan.

Floral tributes and cards from the family: 


The coffin draped in purple, 
along with pink Netta's favourite colour, with a single carnation  

There are also a few war graves at Old Petty Cemetery 
mainly for Polish soldiers  – a timely reminder that Polish forces fought 
alongside the UK 
and its other allies to defeat Nazi Germany
