The first video of four which shows highlights from Ashleys (aka Fatwrecked) Funeral in Ulverstone, Tasmania, and The Memorial Service in Melbourne, Victoria. The two were the same in format but the Memorial had better sound and (since most of us had already had already spoken once) better speakers.
This one starts with the beginning of the funeral with his scooter and his gorilla (favourite fluffy toy as a child) being pushed in by his brother Damien. The song in the background is My Immortal by Evanescence. John Wicks (the Funeral Director) then reads the poem Heres to the Crazy Ones (Author Unknown) chosen by Kerry, (Johns daughter died from cancer at the age of ten). Watching him in silence at the start you can feel him thinking of her while giving Kerry and me tremendous empathy.
We only show Marees speech from the Ulverstone funeral (she is a work colleague of Kerry) as she was the only person to make an impromptu speech that didnt make one in Melbourne as well.
We go onto Melbourne and after a shot of the front (with Damien only being able to bring in the gorilla as his scooter was too heavy for airline flight sorry about his backside shot) then Kerrys speech.
A Big, Big Thanks to James (invghost) for his help.
