It is with great sadness that we share the news of the tragic and unexpected passing of Brian Farrell last Wednesday. 

Our hearts go out to Lesa and Liam.

Brian’s memorial service details:

When:        2pm Monday, 31 July 2017

Where:      St. Patrick’s Cathedral

43 Wyndham Street, Auckland City

After:        There will be a gathering opportunity for friends and family after the service at Liston Hall, just next door to the Cathedral. All are welcome.

Fiona is organizing flowers from OWR. If you would like to contribute please contact her asap.

Oh Brian… the world was a better place with you in it. You will be sorely missed.

Below is an excerpt of one of his favorite poems, Desiderata by Max Ehrmann, that will be read at the service tomorrow:

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.

Rest in peace, Brian.
