Maureen Greaves, the widow of murdered church organist Alan Greaves, has told the congregation at St Saviour's Church:
I have wept over the evil that has been done. I have prayed for you and I know you have prayed for me. You were Alan's Christian family and he loved belonging to this church. I have felt your love towards me.
I have prayed constantly for Alan and I know you have too. I have not stopped crying for him and I know you have not stopped either.
