Thank you all for the fant­ast­ic team­work that made Fabian’s Memori­al Ser­vice and Wake such a won­der­ful and mem­or­able event on Monday.

Clos­ing the car­park was essen­tial to accom­mod­ate the crowds and we could have done with a “valet park­ing ser­vice” — there were numer­ous people with mobil­ity per­mits! In fact, Susan actu­ally parked one car for a dis­abled driver. Andrew and Paul had a hard job man­aging the park­ing situ­ation.  How­ever the weath­er was glor­i­ous and it was so nice to be able to wel­come, include, host and serve so many people.

Thank you espe­cially to Fr Jeff, Fr Philip, Andy Ser­afin, Peter Sey­mour, Eddie Reddy, and Oscar Dav­is in the sanc­tu­ary and of course to Kathy our organ­ist and her assist­ant Kim and to Raj and Kath­er­ine for their beau­ti­ful duet — Fabi­an would have loved it!.

Spe­cial thanks to those who helped set up tables and chairs and brought food- there was a ver­it­able feast.  We know our vis­it­ors were looked after very well by all who were serving them.

To the Chiew fam­ily, espe­cially to Kev­in who came to clear the car­park at sun­rise, and all who slaved in the kit­chen over many hours — to say simply thank you is not enough!

Thanks to Stu­art Veitch who arrived before 8 and left after 4.30 pm and to the diehards who stayed to fin­ish the clean­ing with us.  Wow we were all still stand­ing upright — just!!

Thank you again every­one — you respon­ded won­der­fully to our call for help. It was also so mar­vel­lous to see pre­vi­ous parish­ion­ers return to hon­our Fabi­an and to share in our mourning.

We have lost three inspir­a­tion­ally, beau­ti­fully gif­ted and uniquely dif­fer­ent people from our con­greg­a­tion this year in Shir­ley Allen, Rose­mary Brad­ford and now Fabi­an; we give thanks for their life and wit­ness to our Lord Jesus Christ and for their ser­vice to our par­ish and their wider com­munit­ies, over decades!

If you were unable to attend the ser­vice or watch the live stream­ing, it is being edited and will be avail­able on our church web­site in about a week.
