A widower has described the emotional moment a rainbow appeared – at the spot where he scattered his wife’s ashes.
Retired scientist Deryk Walker was devastated by the death of his wife, Vera, 84.
He decided to scatter her ashes by the lighthouse at Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, where she used to enjoy walking the family dog.
And to his delight a couple of months later a rainbow formed as their daughter and her husband sat on a nearby seafront bench bought in Vera’s memory.
Deryk, 85, who lives in Burnham-on-Sea, said: “It was incredible. It must have been a sign.
“I don’t really believe in God but I think this must have been a spotlight shining down from heaven.
“It’s amazing that my daughter managed to get a picture of it on her phone.
“Vera used to love the beach, we’d walk up and down it and we’d often take my daughter’s dog with us too. She was such a lovely person.”
