FAREWELL..I MISS YOU SO MUCH.
THE first of the four rail workers killed by a runaway wagon was laid to rest yesterday.
Garry Tindall, 46, lived just a quarter of a mile from the spot at Tebay, Cumbria, where he and his colleagues were struck as they worked on the West Coast main line last Sunday morning.
The neighbouring village of Kirkbride came to a standstill as 300 mourners packed St James' church. 150 listened to the funeral service outside as prayers were said for his wife Christine, who is recovering from major surgery, and son Darren, 18, as well as the other three workmen, Chris Waters, 53, Colin Buckley, 49 and Darren Burgess, 30.
Wreaths left included one in the shape of a dartboard which read: "I will miss you so much. All my love, Christine." Garry's son was due to be working in the same gang but had swapped his shift to go on a Valentine's Night date with his girlfriend.
