I wore my Thunderbirds tie today at work in honor and I watched Torchy the Battery Boy with my 5 year old daughter. She has watched the episodes over and over again and says to me today that she loves Torchy!!

I haven't been able to get her to watch Supercar or Fireball Xl5... yet!

I loved the flower FAB and Thunderbird 2 at Gerry's service - very touching..

A very nice tribute.
I received mine today and I think It's a very well written and designed tribute.

To be honest, ever since the news broke I've been at a loss to properly describe what it feels like or how grateful I am for all the enjoyment I've had over the years. Quite simply, I was two when Twizzle came out, so the whole 'Gerry Anderson world' has always been there.

The tribute article sums up everything perfectly, many thanks to all concerned.

I have put some of the photos that I took at the funeral and reception up on Flickr. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjDzjWQx

I have not duplicated any images that are commonly available on the various news links that have been posted already.

If you want to share the photos on the internet, please do so, but I would appreciate a credit.

It's a bit unusual to say this about a funeral, but it looks like a good day was had by all, and a great mans life was celebrated as it should be. Once again, even though I personally couldn't go, I would like to extend my thanks to Gerrys family for allowing fans to attend.
Now perhaps to show our appreciation, some sort of annual memorial might be in order. It doesn't have to be anything lavish or grand, just a gesture we can attend that will show we care although lavish and grand would be no more than Gerry deserves.
What say you lot?

I wasn't able to come along to the funeral to pay my respects on Friday, but was thinking of Gerry and the Anderson family.

It was indeed extremely kind of the family to invite fans to come along, I'd like to add my thanks to them for their generosity and thoughtfulness at such a time of mourning.

The Fanderson tribute was excellent.

The photos posted on Flickr by Mrs Bleathman are greatly appreciated.
