Thank you Peter P and Peter R, Senior, Ashok, Supernet, Darren, Damir, Linuxguru and Zia, not in order! I appreciate the very gracious condolences, thank you all....

Now the next phase continues. Today Alessandra returns to NYC in two hours - 23 hours journey - and I go on with life with my Mom at last resting. It was a huge funeral of 300 people - and pouring with rain and 12C. My wonderful cousin, Tim, drove 2,200kms from Queensland to be there - we grew up in the country and love the guy. He was a senior supervisor of a large oil refinery and is a very technical, practical man. We played Bach's Oratorio and Elgar's Enigma Variations (Nimrod) at the ceremony, and after my 6 minute eulogy the eldest granddaughters spoke movingly. We had a wake at my Mom's Art Gallery, and I have was talked with many friends of Mom I had never known. I had left the town in 1962, moving around Australia for 15 years and then settling in Melbourne in 1977.

Thank you all very much, its meant a lot to me, just as after my return from illness two years when the well wishers filled 16 pages of this forum. I believe I need to travel to met as many of you as I can when I'm ready to fly again. Australia, infortunately, is so remote to all of you........
