  1. Since it’s Bruce’s birthday today, here is a photo Marsha sent me of her signing a giant Bruce birthday card a couple of years ago. It’s already 6 months without her and I miss her more and more every day. It breaks my heart listening to Bruce still, but hearing him today just made me overwhelmed with emotion of thinking of her and I went through our old messages for the thousandth time. i just thought I’d share this because it makes me happy seeing her so happy
  2. Happy Birthday Bruce. I wouldn’t be where I am today, have made the friendships that I have, found a place that I love as much as Asbury, or have any of the amazing experiences I’ve had if it wasn’t for you.
  3. I’m not 100% sure when mine expires, I’ll have a look this week and let you know! I assume that it will have, I think they only last for 2 years
  4. November I can travel!! It’s been 19 months since I was last in Asbury Park! I can finally see the bench! My heart is going to burst
  5. I have a VIP ticket for sale for Sea Hear Now in Asbury Park this weekend - $510 I’m unable to attend due to travel restrictions. Ticket can be picked up at will call, ive confirmed this with the ticket agency and I will provide all the details. Message me if interested

  7. Marsha actually gave me her tshirt from the MetLife show that was made in honour of Rich. She sent me it as a gift along with another one before the two of us had ever even met. I never knew him only what she told me but every time I wear the tshirt I think of his memory and all the great things I’ve read about him on here. I need to find the documentary online so I can watch it
  8. I remember being 5/6 and taking the lyric booklet out of the Abba CD and learning to read through that I was obsessed that would be fun! I don’t have a pod though I got the dance floor next to the stage .. some may call it ‘general admission’ (but actuallt the most expensive because it wouldn’t let me book it without booking it as a hotel package)
  9. I just saw you tagged me in it so I had a read!! Thank you I didn’t realise maybe other lakers will be there the same night and I’ll get to say hi. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to say hi to anyone! awwwww that’s so cute!! I’m starting at a new chemist on Monday. I’ve been transferred to a little one. Maybe it looks like the one next to you! That’s so nice. I’m really nervous, I’ve been at my work for so long and it feels like a big change. Hopefully a positive one!!
  10. Yes first night!! dance floor tickets! I’m so ready!
  11. Don’t go too wild!! I’m glad you got what you hoped for. I on the other hand plan on perfecting my dance moves for the next 8 months If they are, I will probably pass out. I know Agnetha and Frida going is a long shot but if they did, I don’t think I’d ever recover. I think Benny and Björn will definitely pop up here and there, they really love it and they like engaging which is nice. I’m sad it’s so long away, I’m excited!
  12. I’m glad you managed to get in eventually! Did you get the date you wanted? I saw that the first night was sold out before it went on general sale, so I feel super lucky to have got those tickets. I wonder if any of the members will be there, or if there will be a show before that for press etc
  13. Oh I know, i was looking at the hashtag on Twitter and it seemed like every single person had a problem paying except for me. I got on at 10 and there was only 1000 people in the queue ahead, and by 10:06 I had two tickets for opening night. I had to buy the hotel package though because they didn’t have standard general admission.. I’m excited to dance and sing my lil heart out though
  14. Wait whattttt? Is there a full list of places he’s coming to somewhere?
  15. Happiest of Birthdays @Daisey Jeep!!! Sending you all the love and hugs from across the world. I hope your day is as wonderful as you
  16. You are the sweetest i will definitely try and find a way to honour Marsha in every thing that I do, and every day that I can. I hope that I do something for my birthday that can make me feel like I shared it with her. The day before my birthday will be 2 years since the last time we were together, so it’s going to be hard either way. No SOB for me sadly.. I had hoped and prayed but it wasn’t meant to be. I won’t let myself be too sad because the luck I had the first run was more than I could have hoped for and nothing will compare to that birthday show, right? I’d hoped to be there for Sea Hear Now next week too but that’s looking unlikely. It’s just a lot of disappointment but it’s out of my control I got tickets for the first night of the Abba thing in London next year though so that’s something fun and exciting to look forward to Sending hugs ❤️
  17. Me too. It still doesn’t feel real and I miss her so much. Every day there’s something I wish I could talk to her about. I have a ticket for Bruce next week and it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to go and I miss the comfort I know she would give to me its getting closer to my birthday and the time I’d usually be in New Jersey and I’m dreading it because it just doesn’t feel right
  18. https://www.instagram.com/p/CS_KibTArBO/?utm_medium=copy_link Is anyone going to this?? I was kinda tempted since I haven’t been to a show here since 2019 and I’m ready for some live music
  19. Thank you so much, I really hope my visit is sometime soon. I need it. I feel like I’m just kind of floating along until I have the closure of seeing the bench. I can’t wait to spend time there and hopefully meet some of you there one day.
  20. Wow, I’m crying reading this. Amazing. This is one of the best things I’ve ever read about. Hits so close to home after everyone here pulling together for RJM this year.
  21. Incase you can’t see the video I put it on my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/yrw4rajt584jd18/IMG_4923.MP4?dl=0
  22. Okay everyone, I just made the donation to St.Jude’s in memory of our wonderful Marsha. IMG_4923.MP4 ive included the screenshots of the money from the money pool, and then I did a video so you could see what was donated. By making a memorial donation you can send a card showing the donation so I sent it to Ray and signed it from all of us here. The video shows everything that it says. I wanted to write more but there wasn’t enough space. Anyway, $612 donated to St.Jude’s children’s hospital on Marsha’s behalf. Just wow. That and her having her own bench on the boardwalk in Asbury is just amazing and I couldn’t have done it without all of you so thank you so much. I honestly can’t believe the kindness shown and it really just shows how much Marsha meant to all of us and what an impact she had on all of our lives. I’m so grateful to have know her and to have been able to have done something for her that I know would mean so much to her. I can’t thank you all enough for your contributions, I hope that you know how much it means to me and I hope that by doing this for Marsha, and by getting her that bench on the boardwalk, you can all get to visit some day and remember her and remember this wonderful thing that you did not just for Marsha but for all of the children that St.Jude’s helps thank you so so much. I miss her more than anything and I really hope that she’s proud
