    Doug, Very sorry to hear of the sad loss of your mother, hope she had a peaceful end. Must say she had a good innings, that's given me a target to aspire to.
    With all good wishes, Nerys

    For our Queen, THE QUEEN,
    and my Mum whose funeral will be on the day after Elizabeth R's.
    With thanks to Dylan Thomas, who in this poem concisely encapsulated Life and Death better than anyone (least of all me, a simple engineer).

    Do not go gentle into that good night
    Dylan Thomas

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my (Queen), there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    When I listen to the number of heads of state Primeministers ,Presidents and world leaders I think of two that stand out. Canada's Primeminister Justin Trudeau his father PET. US presidents GW Bush and GHW Bush. They had the honor of being presented to the Queen as leaders of their countries. You would fill a room with photos and stories of the many leaders she met with.
    Such an outstanding legacy to leave the world.

    There isn't a lot that can be added to all the good things that our members have been saying about the Queen. She was a most worthy monarch.
    Yes, I remember the coronation, I remember sailing out of the Medway to Sea Reach on the Thames with a host of other yachts to greet her on her return from her first cruise as monarch on Britannia.
    I can also say that I have known five monarchs in my lifetime. King George 5, Edward 8, George 6, Queen Elizabeth and now King Charles 3.

    Very sad day yesterday when our Queen Elizabeth II passed. I am old enough to remember her accession and Coronation and like many others was deeply moved by the Coronation ceremony and the pledges made. It was even more memorable as many families were able to watch the whole proceedings on the relatively new TVs that were becoming available. We all had a day off school to celebrate.
    Throughout her reign we have seen the Queen and her family fulfil her pledge, and support and promote the UK and Commonwealth both at home and abroad.
    She was respected across the World and will be remembered for all the joy and enjoyment she engendered in her long reign.
    R.I.P. your majesty.
    Long live the King.

    Sad day here in NZ as well. I remember us going to the city as a kid to watch the Queens downtown parade (along with most of the country). Also watched her later 9 trips here. Her Christmas message was given from here on her last trip in 2002. She also opened our new parliament building in Feb 1977 and has the QEII stadium in Christchurch with her name on it. Still have pics I took of the Britannia in Auckland, and remember being impressed at the glossy finish. The Queens coronation was one month after I was born, so like many, she has been there all my life. A truly remarkable woman who touched millions and will be remembered for her service to the commonwealth.

    A tiny example of how far she went to support young people, was this meeting with a young local girl (along with 5 other young people) for the Queens Young Leaders Awards which must have made her life. For any young people to say they had 'met the Queen' would have been a lifetimes' worth of encouragement, (not to mention credit)

    Many of our place and street names are from the royal families connection , Sandringham, Balmoral, Queen St, Elizabeth St, Windsor Rd, Duke St, Royal Rd, Buckingham St, Duke of Edinburgh awards etc, so without that connection, and her influence, things would have been different here for sure.

    RIP, Ma'am you have earned it.

    Truly a sad day for the world.
    I have only learned through documentaries regarding the Royal family. The Queen's strenght, loyalty to her position and the world. Very remarkable.

    I have had nothing but admortation for this Lady that the whole world respected.

    My apologies if I have miss spoken or out of place.

    Doug, sorry to hear of your Moms passing. Iโ€™ve lost both of my parents years ago, and I still miss them something fierce. Not trying to pry, but I hope she went easy.

    As for the Queen, I truly hope the King can live up to her legacy, and can lead England as well as She did. Seven decades!! Yep, she left some mighty big shoes to fill.
