Unfortunately this very sad news has just been published.....let's all say a little prayer ........
"London’s Central Hall in Westminster saw the world premiere of a new symphonic work, ‘The Titanic Requiem’ tonight (April 10). The piece, which features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, was written to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the famous ship on April 15, 1912. However, one of the composers of the piece, Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, was unable to attend due to his deteriorating health.
The 62-year old singer, who wrote the piece with his son Robin-John, was hospitalized on March 25 due to an twisted bowel and has remained in the private clinic since. Gibb and his twin brother Maurice, were born with the intestinal issue known as volvulus. Maurice passed away in 2003 from complications resulting from the condition.
On Sunday (April 8), it was reported that Barry Gibb flew from his home in Tennessee to London to be at his brother’s side. Barry’s son Stephen also flew from Miami. British tabloids are quoting an unnamed family friend, who says that Robin has possibly contracted pneumonia and that his condition is getting worse.
This sad news comes a little more than a month after Gibb announced that he was in remission from liver cancer. Gibb was diagnosed with the disease in the fall of 2011."
Thank you Sylvia. I was just picturing this glass drawn horse with his coffin in view! Sounds or seems beautiful. Wow! Boltonnut from L. A. CA USA who loves life. Thanks girls. Love all of you. :( xo
I know for some of you this may be a repeat.
I can't hear this but need to though I'll cry my eyes out.
Robin Gibb's 'final farewell' to fans
Have just seen quite a little bit of Robin's funeral procession and his internment on our news and it was really quite beautiful and oh so sad seeing those black horses with their black plumes pulling a white glass coach with Robin's white coffin inside and the top was covered completely in red roses and from the crowds that gathered to see him pass many stepped forward and threw flowers on the top as well ....all the family walked behind his coffin to the church and they also allowed a small shot of his coffin being carried into the church and then. although his actual site of internment was shielded by shrubs, you saw Barry and then you could see all the boys who were holding the cords letting them go and at the point, when you knew he had been lowered, Barry raised his head and looked toward the sky. Funnily enough it appeared as though the age old custom was adhered to in that no women went to the graveside.....maybe I have got it completely wrong and it was only the angle of the camera, as it was concentrating on Barry, but I saw no women, not even Dwina.
Sylvia. Your wee Scottish friend.
