I posted a couple of days ago I think, asking you to raise a glass and celebrate a life well lived
For those that did both online and hopefully in private my heartfelt thanks.

I got back from my friends wake this morning, what can I say ? I'm emotionally exhausted. Friends, true friends I haven't seen for in some cases 23 years celebrated with my friends family. We cried, yeah some big tough old school bikers, some that are now successful business men, some that need a break in life, one or two that still haven't grown up *blushes*.

We laughed so hard I still hurt.

Then a very dear friend in a drunken state stood up (If you can call it standing) and pronounced that a promise was made 20 odd years ago around a fire between two brothers. He bet me me that I had forgotten that and raised a glass in celebration of life, before he could finish I had my phone out and that thread up.

The room went quiet as the phone was passed/dropped/picked up/spilled drink over etc.

After all the curious had seen the thread they all raised a glass

The toast was this as far as I remember

To a life well lived
To friends eternal

At that point we would usually drink

My some what the worse for wear friend stopped the toast and added (he is usually an emotional ice block)

To friends we trust and have never met.
To all those that raised a glass at ATS we salute you. A long and happy life to you all, may you all know the true meaning of friendship. Friends eternal

Cheers ATS and thank you

Respect from the boys and girls of my past, present, and no doubt, future.

Cody

Just got back from a pub lunch with some friends and their kiddies. Spent most of the time hunting non existent Easter eggs, I raise my glass of orange juice and lemonade to good old friends and their sprogs.

It doesn't matter the drink
It matters the sentiment behind it

I 2nd your words stated above. You had a celebration of your friends life; and enjoyed all the wonderful memories; that is as it should be.

The magic and love that friendship brings is eternal. Here is a glass for you and yours...

A toast to friendship!!!!
