As I was driving out of the crematorium car park in my Volvo 122S rally car, I heard someone who was attending a subsequent service remark to his companion:

"Must have been a classic car nut."

Sums Geoff up in a nutshell, I think.

Thank you to everyone who made it to the funeral, and also to the folk who couldn`t be there, but were with us in spirit. I think we gave Geoff a suitable sendoff.
It was great to see so many Reliant, rally, BMW and computer friends of his there to say `Goodbye`. Thank you all again.

Couldn't have put it better myself - a wonderful send off Tony.

I am so disappointed I couldn't get there, but circumstances overtook us unfortunately. A routine Dukes C blood test I had the week before this event came up with a few anomolies, I spent most of the day of Geoffs funeral at QA Hospital having blood taken and x rays performed, being poked and prodded and generally feeling quite nervous. It turns out one of the drugs I have to take for the rest of my natural is creating a few liver issues, but that's under review now.

Sorry I missed saying good bye in person to Cooperman.. But I have no doubt you all did him proud.

Pretty sure I took the Red pill.
