It has taken me all this time to get up the courage to post here today. I believe with all my heart that you all will be able to feel the world wide Brokie love that is being sent your way. It has always felt tangible to me.
I will have my silent time at 3.00pm and will send all the love in my heart to all of you there and  strength too. . I have nearly stopped being angry with God now, but it still creeps up on me sometimes.
You have the support of each other and that will help. There is nothing like a Brokie hug. Strange as it may seem, I hope there is laughter along with the tears as you also celebrate Richard's life. xx

As an update, we Brokies are at the hall where the service will start shortly.

Rest assured, Fiona, that there have been and will continue to be plenty of laughter to go along with the tears.

I was telling Ronny this morning that this time has been "cry a little, laugh a little, talk a little, laugh a little more."

I hear it in my head to the tune of The Music Man's Pick-a-Little ladies. :)

Know that song well, Lynne. Big hugs to everybody, please!

I'd just love to be belting out hymns with y'all.

This feels like New Year's Eve, with Dick Clark.  I just keep watching the clock...
Dawn is coming,
Open your eyes...

Fritz - we wish that too - all of you, in fact.

Monika - there is a butterfly in the flower arrangement from Elizabeth and her Mom. There are no coincidences. I will post it later.

A very beautiful tribute Eric!  I watched it through thick tears. Rich just emanates love, wish I had got to know him better.
My thoughts are with you all. A big hug to everyone.

Singing to myself,

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
who abide in His shadow for life,
say to the Lord: "My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!"

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
and famine will bring you no fear:
under His wings your refuge, His faithfulness your shield.

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

You need not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day;
though thousands fall about you, near you it shall not come.

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

For to His angels He's given a command
to guard you in all of your ways;
upon their hands they will bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand
