  Topic :    Rest in Peace Al-Bob
  Thoughts :
    The pain and sorrow will fade with time, but the Aroha and memories will remain forever, you brought so much happiness where ever you went. Now take that smile and display it in Heaven for all to see, and when we raise our faces to the sun we will know it is you looking down spreading your warmth, love and happiness still for all of us who remain. Give a big Bear Hug to Popples and Bev and tell them we Love them as much as we did the day they left too. Dont worry about Bettina & Shreds, I and the rest of the Lads will look after them for you.Take a piece of us with you Al-Bob as you do your last run, and as you cross that finish line look back and know we are here, with all our LOVE for you in our HEARTS FOREVER. Kia hora te marino, Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana, Kia tere te karohirohi. May the seas be calm, May the shimmer of summer Glisten like the greenstone, Dance across thy pathway. Ma Io koutou e manaaki, e tiaki, i nga wa katoa. May your God bless you and protect you for all time. Love you Big Guy

  Topic :    Alan remembered
  Thoughts :
    Even though I have known Bettina and Alan for less than two short years, I count myself lucky to have spent some good times with them...dinner at their house and party at Josef and Matilde's. These will remain great memories...what I remember most about Alan is his smile and good nature. I am reminded how quickly that which is taken for granted can change in a brief moment. Bettina, my thoughts are with you...a big hug....Lambert

  Thoughts :
    Ich muß leider in deutsch schreiben, da mir die Worte auf Englisch fehlen. Es tut so unendlich weh, daß Du nicht mehr bei uns bist. Beim Autofahren schaue ich auf Vw Busse, ob Du drin sitzt, beim Joggen kam mir gestern einer entgegen und ich grüßte ihn, es warst leider nicht Du und bei jedem Anruf hoffe ich, daß es Du bist oder mir jemand sagt, Du bist aufgewacht. Mit Jonas entschloss ich mich nochmal ins Krankenhaus zu gehen um mich von Dir zu verabschieden. Dank Bettinas Bruders gutes Zureden schaffte ich es überhaupt in das Zimmer. Im nachhinein bin ich so glücklich, Dir nochmal Tschüß gesagt zu haben.Es hat mir damals das Herz zerrissen, wie Du da gelegen bist und Jonas und ich einfach machtlos waren, Dich aufzuwecken, um mit Dir einen leckeren Cappuccino zu trinken.Ich durfte ganz schöne Momente mit Dir verbringen (Marion/Johns Hochzeit,IRONMAN Quali in Zürich und viele schöne Frühstücke/Sportevents) und dafür möchte ich mich bei Dir bedanken.Deine gute Laune, Deine Lebensfreude und positive Einstellung waren so unglaublich ansteckend. Vielen Dank mein Freund!!!

    Hey Al. You are one of a kind, an incredible person. The world was a brighter place with you in it. I love you and I wish you were still here, I miss you so much. You were my favourite training partner, even though you always went too fast. I am so happy to have met you those years ago. I wish I could of told you all this and so much more, before you so abruptly left us. My thoughts are with you, Bettina and your family

    I have only known Big Al for 3 years but it feels like I have known him for 30! The first time I met Al, he had the biggest smile on his face. I thought to myself, "WOW" this guy loves life!! He was the most upbeat and positive person and one that I will always keep close to my heart!! Big Al, you will always be my sunshine and my spirit in life!! Every time I'm in the pool,I know that you will be there beside me! Take care of yourself Big Guy!! Your swim trainer and good friend, Love ya!! Debra

  Thoughts :
    Big Al - we had the chance to share some years of your much too short life, to get this wonderful large smile from your face many times, to have childish fun with you but also serious talks and lots of moments of deep friendship. We all had liked to spend much more time with you but will try to see it the way you 'd have learnt us to see it. "Being thanksful and happy to have shared many great moments of life with you, not complaining about your destiny but wishing you a peaceful next step and promising you to keep you alive in our mind, alive as a reliable generous lovely friend and sure, also as a daylight Ironman Hawaii Finisher......"

  Topic :    Going Home...
  Thoughts :
    Dear Al, I can't believe it, I guess no one can... but I'm glad that I had the chance to get to know you, to share so many beautiful and funny moments with you - your jokes, your smile... trying to convince us, that a snowboard can be used as a surfboard by crashing into that river on the slope in ellmau :-) That was a good one! :-) Your support via textmessages during my first longdistance race, your presence that made everyone smile, and still does. I'll always have you with me, every meter I'll swim, every kilometer I'll ride my bike and every minute I run! Take care, wherever you are - I will NEVER forget you! This poem is for you Al, for Bettina, Al's family, friends and all who will always remember your smile! Going Home (Susan E. O’dell) Go rest now precious one, Your life in eternity has just begun. Now you can walk, your legs are brand new. All of heaven is now in your view. Look all around,it's all in your sight, There will never be another dark night. Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold, and all of the things that have been told. I can just imagine the smile on your face as you walk all around in that beautiful place. Greeting our loved ones as you walk along, while singing heaven's most beautiful song. This is so very hard, but it will all be okay, it isn't goodbye,we'll see you one day. We love you and we'll miss you and at times it will be tough, but as with everything,God's grace will be enough.

  Thoughts :
    Hi Al, habe gerade gelesen, dass wir Dich künftig nur noch in Gedanken bei uns haben können. Ich hab irgendwie grad keine Ahnung, was ich schreiben soll. Ich hab darin (Gott sei Dank) keine Übung. Eigentlich lebe ich immer bisserl nach dem Motto: Take it easy, take it slow, but take it!... ..aber irgendwie fällt mir das momentan ziemlich schwer. Ich kannte Dich zwar erst seit November aber Du hast halt einfach immer etwas positives, freundschaftliches und motivierendes ausgestrahlt. Ich hatte immer den Einduck, dass es bei Dir nichts anderes gibt, als "gut drauf" zu sein. Du warst einfach ein Mensch, von dem man sich nicht nur in Sachen Triathlon etwas abschauen konnte. Schade, dass der Litti und ich Dich in Roth nicht "hetzten" können aber wir hoffen drauf, dass Du uns den ein oder anderen Energieblitz nach unten schickst! G´day Mate

  Thoughts :
    Al,you've learnt your lessons in life in such a short time, you've left us all enriched by the lessons we needed to learn from you. Thankyou for you friendship and loyalty. Go in peace to watch over those you love and know that you will often be thought of with respect and admiration. Love to Bettina, Sherrida and families.
