getting ready to say goodbye

It's Baz's funeral this afternoon.


I just dropped off some cake at Zac's and already the street is littered with bikes and bikers, some of whom have travelled from Australia, Germany, Finland, Ireland and even England to be here. Baz was a much loved and well-respected man.




The coffin is in Zac's and his children have left a half-drunk glass of beer and a cigarette on it. I love that touch.


My excitement today will be riding pillion on Gareth's bike in the funeral cortege! I've been invited as an honorary 'biker' for the day and I even have a batman helmet. There will be no stopping me now ...

Oh Liz - prepare yourself for the tears - I have taken part in these rideouts before for our lost bikers and it is mindblowing!
Will be thinking of you ((((HUGS))))

An honour indeed for you to join the cortege.

Great cake...

My coffin will ride to my final resting place with one of my guitars on it - it is a very special one that was bought for me with a lot of love... These things define who we are and how we'll be remembered.
