It was a beautiful elegant Methodist funeral, very fitting for a Conservative lady of her stature.
The Queen and her husband attended.
Black horses brought Lady Thatcher in and a hearse left St. Pauls Cathedral with her casket .
She is expected to be cremated in private, with her family present.
Many people stood alongside the road to watch the procession in quiet respect and silence.
I saw Mulroney and Harper in the church. It was very nice of them to attend .
Obama sent no one to represent the US. Gorbachev and Nancy Regan were too ill to attend.
Thatcher planned her own funeral . There were no eulogies said by her family.
It was kept simple and formal.
She came to power when England was in dire straights, strike after strike, people dying in the streets.
Today England is prosperous and free and can look forward because of her policies and strength to say NO.
Many people don't like her but she said sometimes you have to say and do things you yourself don't like. That's part of the job.
It is quite clear though that she loved her country and in the end England gave her, her just rewards.
So many things happening and always at the same time.
It always comes in threes so I dread to wonder what the third thing will be.
We get to see so many important things on television. The Passing of Lady Diana, Wedding of her son William to Catherine, The death of the Pope, Resignation of the next Pope. Queens' Jubilee. Election of Obama, death of Osama, hanging of Saddam..... and all as it happens, right before our eyes.
We see wars as they happen.
Never in history, could we actually be right there, without leaving our homes.
Well, fare well great lady.
May your journey continue to be a good one,
in health and with Gods' blessing.
