Back On Your Bike

November 2015 update ***

We are heart broken because our beautiful son and brother Richie has left us. After three brave years of trying and fighting to overcome his traumatic brain injury he finally succumbed to it and on Sunday 8 November left this earth and his tortured body to soar with the Angels. We miss him so much already. But we want to celebrate the wonderful vibrant human that he was. We will never forget his bravery through the injury and the energy with which he lived his life to the full before the accident. His humour and sweet nature got him through three intolerable and painful years of locked in syndrome and blinding headaches. We loved caring for him and are so grateful we had the time to massage, motivate and love him as much as we could. There was no treatment or therapy we did not try. Our deepest thank you to all of you for your unending support and love for Rich. He felt it and so did we. What we would love you to do now is post your best Richie memories for us. We want to remember the good times and it would mean so much to read them here.

Bye Richie our courageous soldier. You fought a good fight. We are so proud of that. Soar well. We love you to the end and beyond. Forever and ever in our hearts. Go well beautiful soul. We hope heaven has a beautiful new bike for you. You deserve it. We are so blessed that you chose to be in our lives...

We love you

As I reflect on the past 4 years today, I know only a journey of spectacular courage, grace and the deepest love. LOVE was everything that made your journey possible. Your indomitable spirit of loving everyone better, laughing to make everyone feel ok and teaching us that love and laughter were and are still the only way forward. How blessed we all were to share your life and to have you as our teacher. I try to live my life now through your great example of courage, grace and love. I take you with me in everything I do. Thank you for choosing me to be your mother and teaching me how to be the best person I can be. I am forever blessed by the gift of you.

The family will hold a very intimate cremation service on Friday 13th November as per Richie’s request.

His life will be celebrated on Saturday 14th November 2015 across the world with the release of orange or white balloons as we celebrate his life and his release into eternal life.

As Rich has friends and family all over the world that are so special to him we would like you to join in the universal love and celebration of his life by writing a personal send off to Rich on your balloon and releasing it into the sky, wherever you are.

Rich would want us to be happy and to celebrate, so wear something orange, bring your balloons and lets send this amazing boy off on his eternal ride. How blessed we all were to know him.

In memory of Richard Holland
