Eric Thomson Dick RIP

As the St. Mungo Singers prepared for the Holy Week services, the sad news came of the death of a long-term member of the choir, Eric Dick, on 22 March, just weeks short of his 88th birthday.  Eric, with his wife Kay, had been part of the St. Mungo Singers for 25 years until ill-health forced his retirement. He had been a wholehearted and committed member of the bass section, always ready and eager to lend a hand in carrying equipment or music or setting up seating, and the choir turned out in force for his funeral at St. Andrew’s Parish, Bearsden, joining members of the parish choir. The church was filled with family, friends and parishioners, as well as representatives of the Padre Pio prayer groups (Padre Pio being the other great devotion in Eric and Kay’s lives).

Mackle welcomed everyone who had come to St. Andrew’s, a church which had been so much of Eric’s life. At a funeral, he said, we face the reality of pain and the sense of loss, but we are united in faith in God. This faith is a gift. It was one which Eric had been drawn to when he had seen how much it meant to his...
