Farewell Ricardo the Magnificent

Roxi made this beautiful compilation of images and music.
The song is the one that her Dad Richard used to sing to her to send her off to sleep and the one she sang to him to send him on his next adventure.

This is so beautiful. There is no need to say that he loved his life and life loved him. Just a shame it wasn't for longer.
Our love to you both,
Heather and Pete xxxxxxxxxxxxx

My darlings. I'm so glad you know now. Hope to see you at the funeral on Friday the 8th Oct at 4pm at East Harling Church.
Thank you for leaving me a comment

I am so sorry to hear about Rick's leaving. I have no doubt he will stir chaos and bring cheer on a different plane as he did on this one. Judi Wood Sawtell Australia

Dear Jo and Roxi,
Thankyou for your grace and generosity during these last months of Rick's life. Your true and profound sorrow is shared by so many through this blog.
This last collage shows us the joyful adventure of Rick's life of which you were both at the core.
It seems that comfortable, cosy jumper worn as a boy lasted a lifetime.
Many, many tears are falling in Melbourne.

Love Mick and Sophie Fleming

Darling Mick Fleming, if it hadn't been for you looking after me on the CD merchandise table at the National Junk band, I would never had met Ricardo in the first place. A million thanks. xxxxx

darling Roxane, the heartsore girl who has made this small, great tribute to her Dad. You will never know how much or how many you have touched with your great love. I'll be there on Friday in my heart and when those bells ring, as they will, I will hear them. Joey, your brave heart has filled this beautiful internet site and given me so much joy and so many tears.

Thank you Roxi for this beautiful tribute. I sobbed and laughed in turns. Your love for your Dad shines through, so beautiful. I really wish I could be there for the funeral to share the day with you and Joey. To my dearest Joey, giant hugs and sooooo much love from Eltham to you, may your brave heart continue to be true and strong. M & M xxxxxxxxxxxx
