    Arrow Mark "Mozaz" Wallis - A Celebration Of his life.

    A Celebration of the life of

    Mark "Mozaz" Wallis



    Held at Grenoside Crematorium

    Thursday 3, Feb 2011


    For those who could not attend a collection of images from his last day out...



    As most of us know his favourite explore was George Barnsley Tools, Kelham Island. And so it was from here that his friends gathered awaiting Mozaz to arrive for his last look at the old place..





    At around 11.30 am the hearse arrived slowly edging up to the gates where only a few months ago he posed in the old deck chair.





    True to his Tree Hugging principles it could only be a green funeral and a basket casket was truly fitting.

    The sun was quite strong but as our old pal arrived it gathered intensity...



    Into the light goes our old buddy...



    Onto to the Crematorium the cortege drove past his favourite boozer.. The Black Cat.



    Converse and myself were proud to be one of the six pallbearers to do Mozaz one last service.



    The music chosen for the service was "Revolutionary" the welcome & introduction was performed by his old friend Deacon Dave Havard.



    There followed lots of friends sharing their memories of Mozaz with us all. No one was under any illusions, most said they found him difficult but they loved him all the same...

    There was a touching slide show of images half way through which captivated everyone.



    His old friend Sam says one last goodbye...



    When we had outstayed our welcome at the crem due to the next service being about to commence we went onto the working man's club for the afternoon.

    Once again memories were shared, sadness tinged with laughter was the order of the day.



    Dan aka Tranny saur arse rex did a little song on stage, video to follow at some point.



    Sam needs little encouragement to get people to raise their glasses to Mozaz, followed by cheers.. Sam his great friend has worked tirelessly to give him a good send off, and a good send off he had..



    Thanks for looking...

    Great to see so many people there. Looks like Sam organised such a fitting day for him. I would have liked to have gone I think, and glad to hear that it went well
