GARRY DUNCAN

Morning,all.

A very sad day for us all,even if we can all be proud in the part we played in easing the burden for his bereaved family. We have all lost a friend,and as I wrote in the article on hearing of his death,he is a great loss to us all.

But while we have lost a great friend and a fantastic fella,a true force of nature,his family have lost all that too.

And so much more.

So it is that we do not bury our friend Garry Duncan,we grieve for his family who are beside the grave,their last moment with their Dad,grandad,uncle,etc.

Obviously,I come not to praise Garry,but to bury him. In fact,I cannot even be there in person,but many of his friends will be,that is for sure. He was the kinda guy who made friends effortlessly,and the fact that we will never see him again,bloody hell.

And at such a young age,we will all miss him for sure. He made an impression on everyone he met,definitely on everyone that I know. And all good too,of course.

Certainly the trip to Germany that we had planned will be missing a lot more than one person,it will be missing wur pal.

But we aren’t actually waving him off on his last journey today,not really. That happened just over a fortnight ago. Garry will be sitting up on his little fluffy cloud-and I can assure you this is true,cos otherwise I’m not going there!-and shouting over to his hero BOB-“Haw,big man shoot us over wan ae yer specials and get the guitar oot,guid lad!”

“Haw,Peter? When’s ma mates and my kids coming up to join me?”

“Not for some time,Garry. Sorry about that.”

“Aw,that’s magic,cos they’d joost gie me a hard time about the company I’m keeping.”

RIP Garry Duncan.

MORNING ALL and JIM, lovely words there bobby on this sad day, ill be out with the dugs at 10-o clock, but my thoughts and prayers will be with garry and his family🙏

Jobo Baldie

Good morning, friends. Maybe bump into one or two of you in just over an hours time. Wish it was in better circumstances. here’s a wee story for you –
———————————————

THE AUTHOR IS NOT KNOWN. IT WAS FOUND IN THE BILLFOLD OF COACH PAUL BEAR BRYANT, ALABAMA, AFTER HE DIED IN 1982

The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the Following PRIZE in a contest:
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 In your private account for your use.
However, this prize has Rules:
The set of Rules:

1. Everything that you didn’t spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3. You may only spend It.

4. Each morning upon awakening, The bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that Day.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time, it can say, Game Over!” It can close the account And you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally Do?

You would buy anything and Everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don’t know,
because you couldn’t possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL… Shocked ??? YES!

Each of us is already a winner Of this PRIZE. We just can’t seem to see it.

The PRIZE is TIME

1. Each morning we awaken to Receive 86,400 seconds As a gift of Life.

2. And when we go to sleep at Night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.

3. What we haven’t used up that Day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever Gone.

5. Each morning the account is Refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING…

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much More than the same amount in dollars.
Think about it and remember to Enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than You think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy, love deeply and enjoy life!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful And beautiful day.
Start spending….

“DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT GROWING OLD !”

SOME PEOPLE DON’T GET THE PRIVILEGE!

In loving memory of Garry Duncan, our Celtic friend.

Very very sad watching the stream. A fitting tribute. RIP Garry.

A lovely service and heartwarming and fitting tributes from Garry’s loved ones

The Communion hymn was sung with passion and feeling. Very, very, moving.

If someone can remind us the name of hymn that would be appreciated.

Lovely service.

Rest in Peace Garry 💚💚💚

Jullien and Forrest back in full training, Johnston in contention for tomorrow.

Back on the road and the miles to Dundee from Garry’s funeral. A lovely service befitting a well loved Bhoy. Farewell my friend, but not forgotten.

YNWA HH

p.s. many thanks to ATOB/CCB and CRC for lifts – much appreciated.

Got back from the funeral and straight into a meeting with one of the young people and SW.

It was a lovely service and well attended by his Celtic family. Freebird and YNWA alone bookending the crematorium service were fantastic.

I had a word with Ryan after the crematorium service and he is genuinely moved but so happy at the turnout and effort made by everyone on here as well as RCQN and CQN. The Celtic tradition is alive and kicking.

A wee tribute to our antifa republican from Dalmuir from one of his favourites:

The deep expressions of loss generated by so many, is the ultimate tribute to a man who was clearly a success. Garry has provoked both love and friendship from so many, including those that never met him. What a legacy!

Today also reflects well on those who mourn. To love, respect and befriend are the finest characteristics.

For my own personal reasons I look forward to travelling to Glasgow. I have grieving to complete for a family member. However, when I finally get to Glasgow, I shall walk the streets of Knightswood, Temple, Partick and Clydebank and remember a fine soul.

RIP

Rebus

A thing of beauty

Back home now from Garry’s funeral and reading back. Jobo is so right. Time is precious. Use it wisely and treasure it because you never know when it’ll be gone. As I already knew Garry was a well loved and respected man. That shone through today and he got a send off he deserved. His family did him proud.
It was not the best circumstances to meet some well known names from here and CQN but we only know each other through these channels. Too many to mention but all gentlemen.
Friesdorfer,
A pleasure for me to be Parker to your lady Penelope.

Friesdorfer

ATOB
The pleasure was mine. Thanks again for the lifts. A sad occasion but a great turnout. Lovely to meet you, and several others, paying deserved tribute to our pal. I’ll be home in around 30 minutes.

Al Mor,

Malaga is one of my favourite haunts. I would be interested in anything you observe about precautions for Covid. Mask wearing, distancing in restaurants etc.

this was the last vid garry sent me, https://youtu.be/PD-MdiUm1_Y ,, i then sent him this,https://youtu.be/At3xXBEy4n4

Glad to have had the chance to bear witness to the service today for our Delaney’s Dunky/Garry Postecoglou, a guy who went out of his way to make people feel welcome at Celtic gatherings.

Many people from CQN , Sentinel Celts and elsewhere made important contributions to making today happen and, without naming them, they know they have my respect and admiration for their qualities as human beings.

Even the big eejit behind me that prompted us to sing along with YNWA, rose to the moment. People with better voices than me joined in to add their voices to the greater glory of their God, their faith and the man they were seeing laid to rest. With a voice like mine, I chose to subtract rather than add, and I believe that helped too.

God Rest You Garry

SFTB

P.S.- a wee reminder to all that the picks for Superbru have to be in tomorrow by 3 pm

Aye the big 6’7″ eejit 🤔🤣

I got told to shut up in The Jungle once as I was ruining The Soldiers Song for everyone else.

I wasn’t best pleased at being absent today,but I’m so pleased that so many paid their respects in such a lovely ceremony.

GARRY will be missed,for sure,but he won’t be forgotten.
