Sir Patrick was cremated yesterday in what was a very intimate and private ceremony as were his wishes, in March next year there will be a memorial day on what we be his 90th Birthday which no doubt will be attended in great numbers. Dr Brian May posted this:
Jane Fletcher who was Producer for The Sky at night wrote this article:
This sums it all up perfectly this is what it was like at Farthings during filming, Jane being Scottish always brought a good Malt Whisky along as we all had a night cap with Patrick before staggering to bed.
As I say I was very lucky and honoured to be invited along so many times, asked to stay over, to use that fantastic telescope but most of all to have known the man himself who was always fun to be with. All of us are sad about losing him but none of us will last forever as we have found here at MRB as the years have gone by we have lost a few along the way.
