  1. Oh Rachel, what a beautiful service! You all did him proud! And you were so strong, but showed your love so clearly. I shed a few tears along with you, sitting in the sunshine in Lincolnshire, UK, for you and your lovely partner Mark. I remember him so well when you brought him to visit us in Birmingham when Mim was young. I’m so glad you had such wonderful years together and made so many memories.
    When the pain subsides your love will be a great comfort and you know you are not alone.
    Please know you are always in my heart. Much love Lis & Paul xx
    PS Thank you so much for the live link! Incredible

  2. Rachel, how proud I am of you …you have done an amazing job, and it was a wonderful service…. I feel so bad none of us were there to support you, it is a wonderful gesture to arrange this viewing so we can be there is spirit.. and feel we were part of it all.. You were the richer for knowing Mark and we are the richer to knowing you both….

    Lots of Love Frances xx

  3. Beautiful service for a very special man. We will always have fun memories of the short time we spent together with you both and only wish we could have known him longer. We send all our love to you Rachel and the Thomas family and think of you often.

  4. Beautiful service. Everybody spoke such lovely words. All our love to the whole family, Mark and you are all constantly in our thoughts. Much love Erin, Enrico, Ashton, Leo and Harry. XXXXXX

  5. Thank you to you Rachel and to Mark for your thoughtful planning and for making it possible for me and others from U.K. and elsewhere in the world to join in and feel like we were there with you. This beautiful and personal funeral was such a remarkable tribute to a clearly remarkable man – it was so touching and it contained so much love and laughs, sadness and honesty. From Neil Diamond onwards, until preparing for the guard of honour, Mark’s spirit, his loves and his passion, his foibles and his charismatic charm, we could clearly see that these live on in the memories and hearts of those he has left behind. Rach your tribute was beautiful – honest and true, funny and sad, vulnerable and yet strong – I know you will have so many memories to hold you together but I know the loss is unimaginable. You clearly made Mark’s life so meaningful Rach, and his letter to you made me cry it was so painfully beautifully full of love and gratitude. I think the attention to detail, array of photos and music, orchids and anecdotes all added to the personal touch and made this funeral one of the most touching celebrations of a life that was – as quoted ‘ a fully woven tapestry’. He obviously kept you guessing and laughing right up to the end when he was so very brave Rach. As were you when you spoke so movingly about him and while you sat by his side night after night. You were lucky to have had this kind of love that many never experience. Mark’s welcoming of guests to his home that was reported by Lou has most certainly been taken up by Lou and John in Tavistock and I have been on the receiving end of that in their home and this legacy has already been adopted in my own home – so you’ll have to come and visit to test if the hospitality is up to Mark’s standard!
    Iknow I am a long way away but if you want to talk or Skype please know that I and so many of your friends in England are here for you. You have been in our thoughts for months and we talk about you together with love and care. I am so glad you had Lou and John there and that you are clearly surrounded by love of family and friends. I think the celebrant was wonderfully gentle, compassionate and that he had taken his time to find out all about Mark and to include and remember all the little details that gave us such a clear pictute of the man you loved.
    Sending love to you Rach and so much sympathy and empathy. With love Dons and Marianne xxx
