Eliza’s Last Journey

Another sad, yet inspiring day for the Plymouth Chapter as we softly said a loving goodbye to Eliza Lucking who passed away recently having lost her battle with cancer.

We mustered at Trerulefoot and rode to Torpoint Parish Church for a short service of thanksgiving for Eliza’s life. The church was full to standing with people from all walks paying their respects and offering support to the Lucking family. A detailed and delightful eulogy gave us Eliza’s life story and a poem as beautiful as the reader was read out by Eliza and Richard’s daughter, leaving not a dry eye anywhere. 52 is too young to go, but what a legacy of love.

After the service two dozen Harleys escorted Eliza and her family to the private cremation at Bodmin. Seldom has the Cornish countryside been more beautiful than today, as it said farewell to one of it’s daughters.

To Richard and family we offer our love and support, catch you soon Weasel.

Ride free and smile as always Eliza, we’ll see you down the road.

Respect and thanks to Fat Boy Rick and Biker Patch Phil for the excellent work controlling the traffic and allowing us to ride together, well done fellas.

  1. Dookes, I am using Eliza’ iPad to respond – thank you for those kind and beautiful words, it was a heart breaking day for us but made easier by having so many friends there with us. Many people including Revd Lynn Parker said how moving it was to see Plymouth Chapter escort Eliza away. Thank you mate and see you soon. Fond regards. Richard.
