Coronation Street Wiki


It is the day of Alma's funeral. Roy is battling with his own conscience over Wayne, but withdraws the money from his account and meets Alex during Alma's funeral. Mike is none too happy that Linda is accompanying him to the funeral. He cannot bear to be in the same room as her. At the crematorium, Alma's friends pay their last respects and Audrey reads a poem:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not here, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

The mourners are introduced to Alma's cousin, Richard Hillman. Ken pays tribute to Alma, but is appalled when Curly explains that her cancer was the result of a wrong smear test. Hayley returns to find out why Roy did not attend the funeral. She is surprised to find Wayne has come to live with them. Despite Roy's insistence that no money was paid to Alex, Hayley is a little suspicious. At the wake, Audrey plays the video of Alma, who wishes to say a proper goodbye to her friends. On the tape she pays tribute to them all and asks that they remember her.
