The service for Rik at Mortlake Crematorium was beautiful.
The place was jammed to the roof with his friends.
Now we have laid you to rest, my dear, dear brother, (for brother to me you most surely were), rest in peace.
And yet what part of me thinks there shall be more laughter in Heaven now you are there?
And a significant increase in the amount of vodka, Polish sausage, and fine wine consumed......
And angels being taught card games............
Love you, boy.
