It was a very nice mass, which started with the little choir boys finishing the double R by putting each of them white roses in their proper place. THen the trio took over (people weren't very impressed by Andreas hairdoo - bit wild for MC cathedral ). Everyone was already very touched and Caro cried basically from beginning to end, whereas Steph seemed moved but very calm. At one point she mouthed the words to her family that yes she was ok. Some of the music was the same as during the funeral, especially PR favorite song about the little chapel which used to stand in the place of the cathedral. Antoinette wasn't there, but her daughter and granddaughter were there (hope she is ok- haven't seen her out and about roughly since January). They sat with the trio. Apart from PA being late as usual (people did not appreciate that at all and immediately evoked his dads disciplin), the trio arriving before the rest of them (Char didn't wear the head scarf when she arrived - it was arround her neck and she arranged it later), there isn't much to tell.

BTW it was transmitted directly to all MC churches and people were filing in from 17.30 onwards (it was alreay very busy when I got there - glad I had a safe seat ). There were a lot of former MC officials as well.

Anyway, nice mass. I'm sure he would have liked it - especially the beginning.
