Ed, no matter where we turned, you were there with a contagious smile and love for life. The memory of you will never be forgotten. May you have many a beer in the bar up there.

As one of the “usual suspects” Ed is a star on tour, and a good mate. To my recollection Ed has only ever been awarded “the Monk” once, which considering the number of tours he has made is not bad going. I miss you all.

Ed, although we never really knew each other very much, I'm gutted at the thought that you and the other guys are gone - you would've been an awesome Select Captain - you were doing a brilliant job of upholding all the traditions of Select, which have been a model side within the Club, i.e. the whole team in the Sportsmans on a Saturday evening. Respect - you'll be missed. Dinks

Ed, it was such a pleasure playing rugby with you. You always had an unwavering enthusiasm for the game, and the boys thrived of fit. I will never forget the fantastic try that you scored against Sequins 10 days ago. I miss you mate.

Ed, since going fishing together off Salmon Rock on Lough Derg at the age of eleven, we have always been friends. I shall miss you. Simon

Ed was my captain and my friend. It is very comforting to read all the great tribute celebrating Ed's life and to know that he shall never be forgotten. A great man on and off the pitch. until we meet again....DG

As a friend of Eds from Lough Derg Yacht Club and Dublin it's easy to know how much he will be missed and remembered in these places. Over thirty people gathered in a pub in Dublin on Monday after hearing the bad news.

Whilst I never met Ed, I know people who hold him very close to their hearts. He was obviously loved by many and will be sorely missed. My sympathies and condolences to Ed's family and all those who lost a dear, dear friend.

Ed always gave 100 percent to sport and life in general. When asked to come on as one of the subs in a game for KCC at University, his brief was to 'get stuck in mate'. He promptly made a somewhat wild challenge and was booked within seconds of coming on. That moment changed the game, and the KCC were inspired to a win. you are in our thoughts ED.

Ed, only now can you see just how much you have touched each and every one of our lives. You made us all feel so EXCLUSIVE in yours. I am just so privileged to have shared a very small piece of it with you. xxxxxxxxxxx

Ed, I still have a little hope that you will come back to us. I can't beleive you're gone. Though I knew you for four years but it felt like ages. Last time i talked to you that was in Msn and you said you're going to chiangmai and you'll have a bowling game with me and beat me like usual? Also you promise me that you'll come to Australia to visit cuz you missed out last time? I never thought we'll never have that game anymore and that i will never get to see you again :(

Remember people here use to think you are my brother? and you say “no we dont look alike” Well Ed, no matter what, you're always be a good friend and also a brother to me. May you rest in peace. I do miss you alot and will always.

Love always,

Honey (Lalita)

What a pleasure and privilege to have Ed in my team. So dynamic & full of energy, Ed was the life & soul of our office as much as he was at parties and in the sports he played. His enthusiasm, drive, and positive attitude made him win in business, in sport, in friendship, winning our hearts in the process. He was always caring and generous with everyone, thinking not of himself but of the greater good in everything he did. He really put his heart in what he did! His cheerful and happy personality, fun-loving nature and strong presence are being missed so much, leaving physical emptiness behind, but also the great spirit so characteristic of Ed!

Not a contemporary, I'm afraid, but we must have met at Jocelyn's house on the Shannon. Please accept our profound regrets at this terrible event. Every time I look at the famous picture of Silk nosediving I shall think that Ed was on the foredeck.

I can still picture Ed's smile. He is the kind of person that would make an effort to get to know everyone and help anyone, whether he knew them or not. He is selfless. We work on the same floor, but in separate divisions. I spoke to him just days before he left for Bali. On that same evening when he was about to leave the office, a young couple came to the door asking for assistance. Rather than ignore them or asking them to come back during office hours, he helped them out. That is just the kind of person Ed is. I respect that so much, and I wanted his parents to know that they raised an exceptional son and should be proud. On that tragic evening, I am sure he was equally selfless. I am very sorry for what has happened. In his absence, I have come to cherish those around me even more. His smile will never disappear.

21 Tom Steuart-Feilding
What can I say that doesnt echo the hundreds of messages already here? Ed was my head of house in Aidans when I joined Ampleforth back in 1993, we all knew in the house that we were fortuate to have a person like Ed in charge because not only was he fair and genuine, but also approachable and friendly.

It is such an unnecesary waste and my thougths and condolances go out to the Wallers and all who knew him.

22 Keith (SG) - HKFC Sequins Captain
I would like to express my, and those of the HKFC Sequins rugby team, sorrow and extreme sadness at this terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed's family and friends.

I played regularly against Ed (and indeed with him for the Hockey Section F team) and have the utmost respect
for him - I sat having a beer with him just over a week ago, just after our local derby 'Sequins vs Select'. He was both gracious and proud in victory - I will miss his ever happy demeanour off the pitch and greatly miss our personal tussles on the pitch. My sincere condolences to the Waller family.

I am deeply, deeply saddened to hear that you and your family have lost your
brother, Ed, in this abominable outrage. I did not know your brother but have encountered him through the words of your email and want to offer my deepest sympathy to you and to your family.

Ed, you and your family will be in my prayers.

It's heartbreaking that such a senseless tragedy should happen to such a great guy. Ed's passion for life was legendary and he will be remembered with great love by all who had the honour of knowing him.
My deepest sympathies to Ed's family; you and he are all in my thoughts and prayers.

25 Graham & Carolyn Aldrich
Ed breezed into the Boatique in the summer of 1997 and organized a posse to help us move. The lively conversations adn reminiscences of his Dad's and my early days at the end of the work day over a few “staff beers” made a stressful time for us bearable. We declared within minutes of meeting Ed that he could charm the birds off the trees.
The scale and depth of love and feelings of loss displayed on this site is a remarkable tribute to a young man, and is an inspiration to us all to live every day to it's full.
Jocelyn, Pik and Tom, we cannot imagine how you can cope with his loss, but perhaps there is some comfort in the knowledge that in his short life he touched many hearts.

The first time I met Ed was through work. He was professional yet jovial (and thought nothing of teasing me!). The next time I saw him he was wearing a very loud floral shirt, drinking and cheering with his buddies at the Hong Kong sevens. I continued to

King's Cup, Phuket 1999. We'd sailed in from Hong Kong short of crew. Ed and his girls fitted in, as anyone who knows, like only Ed could do. With Ed we won the Cruising Division, without him we would not. The very nature of a man who is a fine example for others to follow.
The world will be a worse place without Ed.
Will meet again!

45 Peter Kirby
I was in Tom's year at Ampleforth so I cant really say I knew Ed. I have been reading the endless stream of tributes on this site and I am overwhelmed by the sheer depth of love , warmth and affection shared by everyone who knew and loved him. I am genuinely sorry not to have known him. In my earlier rather inadequate tribute I mentioned having met Ed very briefly in Hong Kong. In that brief glimpse of Ed as a man rather than the boy I would sometimes see around school, I can really say I was struck by the wealth of character and the traits people have been mentioning in their memories of him. To Tom and your family, I am so deeply sorry. You must be so proud to have had such a wonderful, wonderful son and brother. How comforting it must be to read these messages and to see how truly loved and cherished he is.

Ed was a valued member of DUSC, Trinity College Sailing Club, during my time there. We all loved sailing with him, and partying afterwards. He was a wonderful human being and was universally popular, as this massive tribute site proves. He will be sadly missed.
Sincerest condolences to his family.

I have such happy memories of Ed from Trinity - there were the great parties of course, but also the times when he umpired on miserable Sunday mornings in Santry and never failed to cheer us up with his infectious enthusiasm. I have never met anyone else like Ed. My deepest sympathy to his parents and Tom.

I have only just heard the sad news from Teddy & Pauline Knight. I think we should celebrate Ed's fulfilled life and the happiness he brought to those around him.
Condolences to his family and friends from someone who met him too briefly in Dromineer.He was taken far too early.

55 Norman & Nell Hardie
Dear Pik, Thomas and Jocelyn,

No parent should ever have to bury a son, or a son a brother. The pain and sorrow will always be with you. Our experience is that if you concentrate on the positive and happy times that you had with Ed you will find, despite your tears and deepest despair, yourself smiling at the memory. In smiling you will realise that there is part of Ed with you today and whenever you need to feel his presence.

Attached is a poem that was read at the Queen Mother's funeral earlier in the year. We have changed the feminine into masculine, but the message is the same.

With all our love, sympathy and affection. We share your grief deeply.

Norman & Nell

56 Norman & Nell Hardie
You can shed tears that he is gone
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he's gone
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what he'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

What deeply saddening news for us down here, but i guess they needed someone up there to keep the spirits up.

I knew Ed from Trinity College. We played cricket for T.C.D. He once had to play for the oppositon because they were short...and caught me out. Much to the amusement of the opposition team and Ed. Then he spent the evening apologising and laughing in the same breath ! That was Ed. One of lifes nice guys.

69 Stephen Benians
This has been a hard truth for a lot of people to accept. My deepest sympathy and condolences go to his family.

Ed is a great friend and will be sorely missed. But the hard truth is softened by the untouchable truth that his soul still lives on; we can remember him and think of his cheeky smile, his sense of fun and adventure which he shared with all that met him.

We can think of Ed and be inspired. And laugh..

Dear Nilawan, Jocelyn & Tom

So incredibly sorry to hear your sad news. It's been many years since I've been in contact but I remember fondly what a wonderful loving family you were. My memories of Ed are of a happy, jovial young lad with a great sense of humour but also a wonderful kind heart which he extended to all who knew him. He was adored not only by you but by all who knew him. I would like to offer you my deepest sympathy at this difficult time and hope you find the courage to go on. You are all in my prayers.

72 Raymond Anakwe
I too was at SHAC with Ed and Tom.Like many others I remember how much Ed lived-always honest.Occasionally, as his Head of House he was too honest for comfort.Loyal but most of all just great fun to be around.The depth of these tributes and the variety of different people who all knew Ed speak for themselves. Perhaps a shorter time span than expected but he has certainly made his mark.It is wrong that this should happen to anyone but even more unjust that it should be Ed. We will miss you.

Ed will be sorely missed both on and off the field. It was an honour to play No 9 in the Select memorial game last Saturday and a hard act to follow to continue for the rest of the season. Ed wil stay in our hearts and mind always. These will not be forgotten years.

I have known Ed for just a few months through work, yet his passions to his family, soccer, travel, work were already strongly evident in my mind. I met up with him a couple of days ago before the tragedy and he was so proudly talking about his brother as a film-maker. His warm-hearted, easygoing and enthusiastic personality and the attitude towards life will never be forgotten. My deep sympathy to his parents and family.

84 Simon Rumley
Being Tom's friend, I only met Ed a handful of times but he was always cheery and full of spirits.

He struck me as being a friendly, happy, reliable, honest, no-shit kinda guy who tried to fit in as much as he could wherever he was and whatever he was doing.

I hope friends and family can take some small comfort in this needless, incomprehensible loss by remembering that in his few years on this earth Ed touched many peoples' lives and used his own to the utmost.

I knew Ed when he was at Ampleforth and had the great pleasure of sharing lots of fun and joyful times with him and his friends in Yorkshire, Staffordshire and London.

Ed was a charismatic and caring man and I will never forget the time he saved me from falling down a huge hole outside Wembley stadium in London after a U2 concert.

I will also remember his love for life, beer and for writing poetry.

My deepest sympathies to all of Ed's family and close friends at this very sad time. He will be sorely missed.

Rest in peace Ed.

Ed was one of those people who always looked for the positive things in life, even though he may be feeling down. He was good company to keep with, hads a great sense of humor, and loved to keep a conversation going.

Because of his good naturedness, Ed was well liked by all at the HK office as well as at the other offices. We will miss him.

Ed is a great person....

He is nice to everyone, kind, smiley, cute, helpful and gentleman. The office became silent when he is not in the office. It's really great for me to work with him. He cares about what others feel. He always works hard until late.

I remember that he is the first person who came to me and talked to me the first day when I join the company. He taught me a lot of things. Before I don't believe in god, but from the day I know the news about Ed, I pray for him everynight. I hope the god will bring him back to us.

Ed, I'll miss you always. Your voice, the way you act, the way you talk, the joke you make, the way you laugh and the way you work, are always in my mind and I'll never forget.I hope we can see you soon and you can take a look what we have wrote about you....

I first met Ed about ten years ago when making a first ever visit to Dromineer and the hectic annual Summer Regatta as a guest of the Waller family. My 11 year old daughter knew no one and felt shy and out of her depth. Who smiled, chatted and generally made her feel welcome in the most charming way? Ed of course. A true 100% gentleman with a generous smile, a ready wit and a warm heart ; even when just a young schoolboy! Your loss is a tragedy Ed, but you leave your family, friends and even passing acquaintances with a mass of happy memories that will never fade and always make them smile when they think of you. Which they will. Often.

My deepest heart felt sympathies go out to his family and friends. I share their loss. And maybe tomorrow it won't be so grey. Maybe tomorrow we'll learn to live with the happiness Ed brought us and just be thankful we were lucky enough to have known him.

Ed was special. He might be anywhere in the world, usually at the centre of a party, with his inexhaustable energy, unfailing generosity and kindness, full of fun, laughter and a love of life. Everyone loved Ed and Ed loved everyone, but particularly his mother and his father, who in turn adored him. Everywhere he went - and he went everywhere - he took with him the “feel good” factor, and bequeathed it on all around him. Oh yes, Ed was special, and now he is gone from us. What a waste.

Through all my memories of Ed in College, one thing stands out - he was never without that mischievous smile. To have even a fraction of his enthusiasm for life, his generosity and his warmth towards others would indeed be quite a blessing.

I hope that you, Ed's family, in the months ahead can draw strength from the fact that he was held so deeply in the affections of so many.

Saddened that I cannot be there in person on Saturday, I will be there in spirit, comforted by the knowledge that he will be given the kind of send-off only he deserves.

My thoughts are, and will continue to be, with you at this difficult time.

It can't be any more obvious how much he was loved, admired and appreciated by all.

To my friend and cousin Ed, with whom we had so many wicked adventures on land and sea...
This weekend in Ireland a lot of tears will be shed at the loss of Ed. Ed was a free spirit and he lived and loved life to the full.
To all my family and friends who will be there, please don't get too bogged down with the sorrow and grief when mourning Ed's loss.
Ed would not have wanted that. put you most colourful Hawaiian shirt on with your biggest smile and celebrate Ed's life and love. Give him the greatest send-off possible. Laugh and joke and have the best craic you can, raise a glass and rejoice and remember all the great times. I wish I could be there to party on with you all. Have a wee dram and a pint of he black stuff on me and I will see you all in Hong Kong.

Thinking of you all, be strong and smile. Ed's spirit will live on forever.

All my love,

It is all a bit difficult to understand; so needless and so pointless. We did not know Edward very well, but what comes across very clearly in the hundreds of tributes is his energy and enthusiasm for life.

We were part of many of the same social shenanigans in Trinity. We shared many a night out, messing around and enjoying life as Ed knew best. Ed was a very special person and it is important to me to be at the service. This website has been excellent for all his friends and is helping greatly in the sharing, grieving and celebrating process. You are right - Ed deserves a life-loving almighty send up and celebration and I would be delighted to be a part of it.

He is shaping up to be one of the best captains the Select HKFC team ever had.
He is a great scrum half.
He is a tremendous sportsman.
He is so thoughtful.
He is so energetic.
Wherever you go, he is there too.
He is so popular.
He always seems to have at least two women in tow wherever he goes. And they are his friends!
He is so enthusiastic about his work.
He is a great laugh.
His is so easy going.
I was going to write “was”; but it's just too hard.
And I wished I had told you these things before, but we would have been embarrassed and you would have given me one of those classic Ed looks.

Ed was much more than a friend to me and I can confidently say, for the rest of his housemates at school.
Although our contact durng these last few years has unavoidably broken down, the special memory of our time together during those happy years remains intact. That is the feeling that Ed wanted to withold during the years we were together: whatever happens, however much time we remain apart, we'll always cherish our friends. And he was a truly special friend to all of us.

Larger than life.

Even before I got to know you properly I felt I knew you through the stories, the number of times Kirsty has told me you bounded into her room at some ungodly hour of the morning having finished a night of socialising is untold. As are the tales from all our mutual friends of the visits with you to Chang Mai that sadly I did not get to experience.

Your love of sport, beer, pizza, friends, ally mcbeal can not be rivalled.

So many quirky and lovable little traits you have, just too many to recount.

When I go out to do the trailwalker Maclehose trail I will be thinking of you, of the times we have hiked together and your encouragement including only agreeing to sponsor me if I finish the whole darn thing. Well I'll be going out to finish it, and as I cross the line I hope you will be watching.

You'll be sadly missed.

Sweet, smiley-faced Ed,
So many memories of your bouncing, shiny presence, and many more memories we'll keep recalling and holding onto. It is amazing how naturally 'living' came to you, how you lived and loved so generously without seeming like you needed to try.

You lived , and continue to live, the best way possible.

Thank you for some of the happiest times in my life, you loved to gather friends and family together, and share so many different people in your life with each other. Such a generous way to be.

Your energy, laughter and spirit are sorely missed, my friend, but continue to live in our hearts, and inspire us.

My love and condolences to the Wallers- your son was , is, a rich, rich soul.

Rest in peace, buddy.

Unfortunately I knew Ed for only a short time, I'm very sad I didn't get to know him even more.

But from the instant I met him I felt he was my friend forever. One of those first occasions I met him, surrounded by all his very close friends at a party, he came over to me, made me feel welcome and we sat together for hours chatting and arguing about English soccer and why his favourite Chelsea were “beautiful”, and that was only the second time I had met him, there wasn't a bad bone in his body.

I will sorely miss him.

You always lived life to the full. If there can be any small consolation in this needless tragedy, it is that you have done a long lifetime of living. The hundreds of tributes to you, from all corners of the globe are a salutation to your short glorious life.

Best wishes always,

I only knew Ed for a few months. I played hockey with him in the Summer league and with the HKFC F team. Ed made me feel welcome and part of the team from the first game (and from the first beer afterwards). This is a rare quality. You never forget someone like Ed.

Ed was someone I barely knew, save from facing off against him for my old club HK Nomads, and an intro from a mutual friend. It was great to see all of the club boys on such good form in Bali, the hour or so everyone spent enjoying post match beers in the hotel pool typied why we all love the cameraderie & spirit so much. Ed was central to this and will be sorely missed.

What more do you add but another name who will miss Ed, the ever present and welcome fixture out and about in Hong-Kong who always had a story to tell or a joke to share. There are a lot of stories about the type of person Ed was and I wanted to share another which sticks out in my memory. I had taken a friend to the club who didn't know anybody - I went to the bar and ended up chatting to someone else for a while and on my return found that Ed had seen my friend (who he didn't know) by herself and had left his rugby mates to keep her company until I returned. There was no ulterior motive just a genuine concern from a hugely sociable personality and one who is already missed immensely.

Dear Ed, it has been an honour and a pleasure to have crossed paths with you. Thanks for taking me along with you to see Chelsea away at West Ham all those years ago. We had seats in the middle of the home stand. You bravely (or was it sensibly?) conquered the urge to shout support for your team. I know how difficult it must have been for you. To your family: strength and hope for the future. Ed was a splendid chap.

Ed, was one of the first people I met upon my arrival at Ampleforth College. He fulfilled his position as head of house in a manner that allowed newcomers like myself to feel at home. I owe the great memories I have of Ampleforth college to people like him.
My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to all those who will miss Ed.

Ed was the most agreeable person I have ever met. The effort he made with people was truely inspiring- he made you feel important, special. He was an example to us all.

After hearing the shocking and terrible news from Kirsty (Ed's friend and flat mate) my father tried to console me with these words.
“Try not to be sad that he has gone but be thankful that this incredibly generous and caring person was part of your life; he has made your life all the more richer”

I am truely thankful for knowing Ed, he made me want to be a better person.

My thoughts go to his family at this time- he was a very special person and will be sadly missed.

Jocelyn, Pik and Tom,
I have peered with admiration through windows of Ed's life with eyes five years older than his since we were very young children at Rynskaheen. In his short life he accomplished so much and touched so many. Words cannnot express my incomprehension of a brutal act where life is snuffed out at an instant. We shall all suffer the poverty of the theft of his opportunity to further realise the great talents he possessed and shared unstintedly with so many without seeking friendship or favour in return. His absence is acute for everyone who has been so fortunate to have known him.
Goodbye Ed.

I remember Ed from the Lough Derg Regatta when we were both about 15. The Regatta only lasted a week and I only met Ed a few times since but I've always thought of him as a friend. He was so friendly, positive and lively, a joy to be around, and his character remains an inspiration. My deepest sympathies.

I met Ed through my dear friend, Una Budd, who fortuitously brought the two of us together for the Ireland vs. Cameroon World Cup match. I live in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, which is halfway between Tokyo and Niigata, where the game was held. Una sent me an e-mail telling me that her friend, Ed, was looking for a place to stay on his way to the game. After trading e-mails, Ed had found a place to crash the night before the game and I found myself with a ticket to the World Cup, and a new friend. Ed was so gracious. Just as is Japanese tradition, he brought me a gift of Absolut vodka as a thank you for me allowing him to stay at my place. Now that bottle of vodka, which I drink from time to time, has a very special meaning to me. In Japanese, you say “kanpai” when you toast someone or something. I'd like to say “Kanpai” to Ed and to all the people his life has touched.

Just to say how incredibly sorry Luke & I were to hear that Ed was caught up in the Bali tragedy. He really was the definition of a great bloke and he has been, and will be, sorely missed. It is so terribly sad and unfair.

I only met Ed once, a couple of years ago in the Sportsman's bar. I cannot remember what we talked about, nor did we ever have the pleasure of chatting again. But I have never forgotten that moment. At the time it struck me how wonderful it is to meet a person so effortlessly affable. That experience, these lovely messages sent in his honour, clarifies to me that Ed represented everything good in mankind -and he has clearly contributed to making the lives of many people that much richer. How proud his family must be.

Ed, I didn't know you well, but you made an impression on me. Even the Monday morning two weeks before Bali when we bumped into each other on the bus. You were still smiling ruefully despite having forgotten your laptop, your tie and nursing a rotten hangover. Yet it was I who was the Monday morning grump and you who was smiling and welcoming a new day.

In fact, every time I met you, you were smiling.

You lived life instinctively: you spoke and acted from the well of goodness within your heart.

I hope someone is watching over you and will help you find peace in death, in the same way you helped so many find happiness in life.

We have many fond memories of Ed. I always remember one Regatta at Dromineer when William was very small, we were walking from the 61M at the Mogul Jetty to rig SOD 96 (Envy). Typically, early in the morning we are rather hurried, fussing over our boats to ensure they are rigged correctly for our race. Not Ed though, he stopped and chatted with us as I introduced him to Willam. Small boys tend to be shy and bashful and William was, but Ed spoke with William until he managed to extract a few words of greeeting from him and a pleasant smile.
Whenever we met Ed he always found time for us. We look forward to meeting him again when we all depart this world. In the meantime, Ed has left a lasting and happy imprint on our memroies, which we shall never forget.

I believe you meet people for a reason. I only met Ed twice but in that time he left an impression. An impression of a totally genuine individual, who took pleasure in the simple things, in bringing life and happiness to others, who ensured every moment of life was lived to the fullest, that every person he touched he left with a sense of this being a better world. I walked away after meeting Ed, wanting to be a better person, wanting to make others feel as good as he had made me feel. They say there are moments of truth in ones life and I remember one of those happening when Ed Waller stepped into my life for a moment. Despite the limited time I knew you, your zest for life and genuine care for others wont be forgotten. May you be in a better place.

I have tried so many times to find some words that make some sense to say. I can't. Everything I say is wrong. Not because of what I know how to say, but because of what words can't say. That has a presence, like your absence, like the absence of light.

Your presence though is everywhere. In “Snotsbar”, in “The Chapel”, in Delaneys, on the email and even in my library! Everywhere.

Most of all though, Ed, your warm and friendly presence is in our hearts, and will be forever.

“Breast you” Ed.

And may that very special presence that touched everyone you met bless you and your family.

Thinking of you and missing you always.

Dear Ed,
You worked for me for 18 months and the only time I ever saw you miserable was every time I insisted that you work on a Saturday morning. I think we all eventually realised this was an uphill battle with a guy who simply loved to party and for whom work simply got in the way of socialising. At your age that was a perfectly acceptable proposition. Where ever you are now I'm sure you're talking with everyone and anyone and my thoughts are with you and your family.

I was extremely sorry to learn about Edward's untimely and tragic passing away from Niti. I have warm memories of his visit to Hyderabad for Kira's (his great grand mother)100th birthday and his lively efforts to get her to smile for the photo sessions. He was a wonderfully warm person. I attended Kira's funeral earlier this year in Mumbai. She had always been so proud of the achievements of both Thomas and Edward.
Ihope God will give you ,Nilawan, Lygia and the rest of the family the strength to bear this loss.

It must be at least ten years ago that I was 'occasional crew' on SILK (1), but I remember well the few times that we sailed together. You were still a student at Ampleforth - young, full of charm and good humour.
With great sadness, it is only today that I have learned about your death in Bali... and only today that I have now read the wonderful tributes that are witness to the special person, friend, son and brother that you were. You achieved a great deal in these last ten years since we met, and obviously touched the hearts of many people.
From a country that suffers daily from the conflict and violence that took your life, I send these remembrances and blessings.

I've just returned to the UK and heard the news and I'm still shocked. Ed brought a lot of happiness to my life while I was at Ampleforth. He was a good friend to me and all who knew him back then, an excellent choice for Head of JH. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Today is Edward's birthday. It's a poignant day for a parent of someone so much loved and enjoyed who has been so cruelly taken from us. We won't ever forget him and remember with affection and joy the many happy moments of his short life and the good he brought to the world. Rest in peace my lovely son.

Ed, last week I made a pilgrimage to Lourdes with the Ampleforth pilgrimage. I lit a candle for you at the grotto. It burned brightly under the statue of Our Lady, a symbol of how your spirit still shines brightly in all our lives.

Earlier today, your mother and I visited your grave. It is peaceful there. In the ballroom of the Dromineer Bay Hotel, where you celebrated your 21st birthday, Fr John Slattery celebrated Mass for you in your remembrance. Your friends and family pray for your peace, and remember you as you would have turned 27 today.

We are sitting here in a typhoon in Hong Kong, which you would have loved, reflecting on your birthday party which we celebrated last night thanks to Kirsty. The following were there in the Pizza Express so that Kirsty could have her veggie pizza and before and after in Dublin Jacks! The following attended: Hoppo and Susie, Kirsty & Tommy, Eamon, Fergal, Sarah, Lucy and CJAH. It was a fun evening full of storiesd about you and your friends, Ben To phonred in as he couldn't get back in time from Dongghuan but he reckoned you would understand anyhow he is coming to Ireland to see you. Well that is about it apart from the fact that Lucy keeps correcting my Englishh and sapelling as usual! Love from us all you are missed and we think about you often! Christopher

There will be an official rememberance service for all Bali vitim's in London on the 12th. I know that some people from Ireland will travel over to London for the service, however, for those of you who will not be flying over for it and would like to get together in Dublin, it has been arranged for a Mass to be held in honour of our friend Ed.

Where: Trinity College Chapel
Time: 12.15pm
Then afterwards perhaps head to a pub close by on Dame Street for a pint and/or lunch be decided on the day.

I'm sitting in a hotel room in Shanghai and just about to head out to watch the Ireland game. I can't help thinking that I should be watching it with you or more likely trying to spot you in the crowd as you'd have definitely been there.

The last year has been like that for us, there have been so many events that you should have been part of and so many things have happened where we know you'd have had laugh, joke or other contribution to make.

I'll raise a jar for you this afternoon, we miss you buddy.

You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can

Hi Ed,

Although your life was far too short, you obviously touched so many people. The hundreds of messages in this tribute bear testament to that fact. I'm not religious - I wish I was - but I do believe that the dead live on in the hearts of those who loved them. So I guess that makes about 659 of us!

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. I'm going to go to mass at the Cathedral in Freiburg and light a candle for you, which will be my first time at mass since my confirmation. So what the nuns failed to achieve, you could.

Sleep well.

Love Always,

I went to mass for you today in the Chapel in Trinity - the priest seemed to think you had studied B.E.S.S.!!

When I travel, I light candles for you - in San Franciso at Christmas, in Freiburg in Germany last month. When I visited your grave last April, the flowers I brought didn't seem enough, so I poured a beer over you, too. You would have laughed at that, but I don't think it did the flowers any good!

Bob Dylan said it better than I can: “May you build a ladder to the stars, and climb on every rung, may you stay Forever Young”. You've done that now, Ed. Rest in peace.

Love, Trish

It was said this time last year that “life goes on”, but that just seemed impossible to imagine. Now one year on, I hope we're doing you proud.
Smiling our smiles, laughing our laughs and living life to the full, just like we saw you do. And we're STILL losing the pub quiz in The Chapel!

Cheers for the happy memories, fun times and giving me the chance to meet someone as kind as you in life. Keep smiling down on us.

One year on, and it still only seems like yesterday when the dreadful news reached us. If I was to choose something that I would remember Ed for, it would have to be his lust for life, and the ability to never ask why, but,'Why not?'
Ed was nearly always the centre of attention ( and usually not intentionaly )as he naturaly drew people to him with his warm, humerous and welcoming persona.
May his memory last forever.

Ed, I am sure you can hear me - what you wished for at the Football Club is coming true - Select players are mixing with the Bulls and vice versa, Scorps and Sequins guys also throwing in their muscle, in fact this was also Clive Walton's wish - that HK Football Club Rugby section become One as Asia's best Rugby Club... shame you guys are not here to enjoy it with us.

Lost another fellow-rugby player in Iraq, a Japanese diplomat, who was working for the the people of Iraq and the world - different circumstances but again tragic - may be you guys will meet up there and have a pint together and share some rugby war-stories?

He weighed in a healthy 3590g and came with a full head of hair! You would be laughing if you saw daddy attempt to change his nappy - I know that some things are best left to mum. Anyway, I'm sure he will grow up supporting Chelsea. But I'll need you to teach him to catch the ball...

Ed, today is no different from any other day in that I still miss and in that I am most certaily not alone. I have heard it said twice recently that “Our children have seen too much death”. And the sailing community has experienced much loss this last while. With each passing you feel older, more somber and where once you felt invincible and so carefree, now you feel there is less joy than before. Yet I consider myself hughely fortunate to have known the likes of yourself and these other outstanding men and we shared many good times. Because of this I know there are more good times ahead and more good people to meet. So Ed, miss you, thinking of you and I know you're never too far away.

It's a year and a half since I last put a message up on this website, and I find myself in Bali once more. I went to see the bomb site again today. A memorial to all the victims has recently been finished. On it are inscribed all the names of the people killed. Ed's name is under the “England” section. I'm not sure what he would have thought of that! On the other side of the road the flowers are still being laid, the insence still being burned and the messages still being written. It was, as before, a very moving experience for me. I suspect it will always remain so, no matter how many times I visit it.

I am sitting at home in HK watching the horrific news of more bombs in Bali. I was in Bali only last week so it makes these recent attacks all the more real. We made the trip to Kuta, seemed ironic at the time that when we arrived at the memorial they were putting the gold leaf on yours and Pete Records names. It is so tragic that 3 years on these people still feel the need to injure and kill innocent people. We miss you terribly and think about and are inspired by you daily.

However, equally unforgettable are some fantastic memories of Ed and the Waller family, who arranged the filming of our own version of Robin Hood while we were at Westminster Cathedral Choir School in the 80s. If anyone still has a copy, it'll be worth more than a few laughs!

I hope the first memory fades faster than the second.

Love to all the Waller family and the small but memorable WCCS crowd.

I'll be at Rugby training tonight back in the UK, then afterwards in the Pub raising a glass (or several) in silent toast to you and the other HKFC lads.
You're still an inspiration every time I pull on a shirt, mate.

Dear friends,

Thursday 12th October 2006 marks the 4th anniversary of the Bali bombings. A permanent memorial dedicated to the victims of the atrocity will be unveiled by HRH Prince Charles in St James Park.

Since the ceremony is limited in number to the families of the victims, it will be difficult for anyone without tickets to attend.

Therefore, we will be having a get together for drinks in the Westminster Arms, a pub nearby (9 Storeys Gate, Westminster tube), for any of Ed's friends who wish to remember him on this day.

The upstairs room is booked from 6pm onwards, and there will be a cash bar for anyone who might like to come along after work for a drink or two.

I look forward to seeing some of you there.

Hi Ed

Your warmth, easy smile and boundless energy are sorely missed by all of us here in Hong Kong. Colloids now in the fourth division and without a win, so nothing new there, but we miss our prolific striker and even more prolific off field social captain. Thinking of you at this time, Graham.

Well, Ed, we're finally on our round the world trip. I know you would've gone out of your way to try and meet up either by using those famous airmiles or by any other means possible. We'll even end up in Hong Kong but not BKK nor CNX I think! Alas it is not to be, not yet at least. Still, thinking of you this long way round and missing you as always my dear. Keep smiling down upon us.

Love always,

Hi Ed, I visit these pages from time to time to say a little hello to you. But today i want to write you a little message.
It surprises me sometimes just how much I still really really miss you and i am still hoping that it was a big joke and that you are going to walk back into our lives again. I keep thinking i see you in crowds.
So much has happened since i saw you last. I got married and i have a daughter. She is called Catherine.
Many other things have happened also but mostly i just want to say that i miss you. I will always miss you.
Your brother is doing a fantastic job reminding us all of you and your wonderfulness and keeping your spirit with us. He is still looking after you - keeping you alive in our hearts. Of course i would rather you where still here with us but i like missing you because i never want to forget. I don't think i will though.
take care my lovely cousin Ed.
Always in my heart xxx Pippa

Hello dearest.
Just wanted to add a little hello. It's been a while since I visited your site although like everyone here I think about you pretty much daily. Life is great right now, am loving my job and have met an amazing guy. I sometimes think you sent him!! Rach was home recently with Alan from one of her many jaunts to far flung places. She seems very happy in New Zealand - not sure if we'll see her back here any time soon. Still miss you dearest chum, and dare say we always will. Big love xoxo

Ed, your second nephew William Edward de Warrenne was born last Tuesday 29th May 2007. Like I fondly remember with us growing up together, he'll be the 'annoying little brother' to Alex for some time. Its a pity you won't be around to teach him footie. But when he's old enough, he'll learn all about your love of Chelsea FC and pizza!

Ed, last week Barry & I passed through Hong Kong, your old stomping ground and then also Bali. I recall at least once you giving out cos I hadn't come to see you in Hong Kong and so on our trip visiting Bali to see where you'd been was a must. Ed, love, it's a lovely place. The memorial is really quite beautiful, contemporary, yet Balinese in style and there's your name up in lights. You're under "Ingris", (dunno how you'd feel about that - we sure claim you as our own) and you are down quite simply as, "Ed Waller", just the way we remember you. It's lovely. The people too are lovely and these bombings have hit them hard. Even the site where the Sari club once stood now grows weeds and is left vacant. There are still flowers, photos and so forth remembering those lost. So it's still obvious how the extent of the 2002 tragedy and the subsequent one in 2005 is still quite raw.

But Ed the world we live in is such a different place to travel in now, with constant security alerts. And with more attacks in the UK just recently and then the Ozzie Government issuing warnings to people visiting Bali again it feels like a very different world from the one you would've known! But I don't reckon that would've stopped you travelling at the drop of a hat, that was your way!

So pet, we still miss you. We would've loved to meet up with you in Hong Kong, but instead it was a very special moment seeing where you'd last been. We just had to visit you there and we are really so glad we did.

One last thing, happy birthday. You're always in our thoughts and our hearts.

Thinking of you,

Hey Ed,
Can't believe it is now 5 years since you left us. Thinking of you especially today. You missed my wedding day last month but your Dad was there in flying form and there was a whole table of Dergies causing mischief! You would have had a ball (as always!).
Lots of love

You have left us for over 5 years;but your favorite motto is still with us, with me.You are always unforgetable, it is not like someone who just said so several years ago, I do think about you often,and missing your smile dreadfully. God bless.

Just Visiting by Accident! Like a creation " Who knew how I would turn out? Predictions, probability, - recession. When is the traffic going to stop is what I ask myself. Even when sitting on the bank of a river in the mountains the planes are still flying, pollution, billions of people in the world many wars, fighting, saddam gone - George Bush and all of us no better behaved than extremely badly behaved Children. This is what we have to manage while we are here on this earth and while not on this earth well it can't be so bad.
Another day of getting up in the morning, another day of work. Everyday I try to enlighten myself, people around me a little. We have to look for something that can make a difference where we can and if we can.

We are all still seeking and this is something of choice but choice which also means scarifice. We all are making scarifices every moment.

Dearest Ed,

It's taken me a while to write here.

I write to you now from an internet cafe metres away from where you were robbed from us over five years ago.

Only a few weeks ago I had dinner with Tom, Christo and Stafford. As ever you come up in conversation in a way that one expects you to bundle in the door any minute with all the velocity of your chaotic charm and chat!

I spent the evening of the fifth anniversary of the bombing with your Dad and Tom in Bangkok - I think it was then I decided on this little personal pilgrimage.

I came here fully intent on celebrating your fully lived life and to remind myself of so many hugely happy memories .yet as I sit here over my keyboard I can't help feeling deeply sad that you're not around for Asian adventures, late night madness and mischief and the general day to day dramas of our lives.

You remain much much missed Ed,

Hi there Ed, I never really knew you, but remember you clearly peeping out of your grandads boat in your orange life jacket. It's one of my first Dromineer memories. You were probably around 5 or 6 at the time. From what I read about you, you were a great guy, and I'm sorry I never really got to know you.

Hi Ed, I met you a couple of times through your friend and my sister Eimear, and I have heard some of the legendary stories of your short life and your character. I am living in Bondi where there are many reminders of others who lost their lives with you, so the tragedy is sometimes quite fresh in the mind. Rest well. Your memory will always be in the minds and hearts of so many.

Hi there Ed did an "official walkround" of the KCC today having been appointed as Event Managers of the Cricket Sixes. Made me think of you and all our friends that we lost that day. You'd be pleased to hear that Polly (Miller) is now pregant with her second child and after 50 skin graft ops has called it a day - she still looks gorgeous. Hope you are genuinely resting in peace - scares me to think about death and even more to know that someone as young has you has had to go through it. Anyway, hope you do somehow get everyone'sm thoughts and prayers because they are still as forthcoming as the day you went. Love, Pippa x

Every time I hear a song from "Queen", you're the first person I think of, I don't know why. I guess it's because Tom used to tease you about it all the time when we were kids. I still think of all the fun we had back then; building fern-houses in Ireland, cod fishing, playing Robin Hood, etc. I miss you man.

It is seven years today. Where has time gone. It really doesn't feel that long since I saw you last and then I look at our lives and realise that time is marching on.
I miss you, we all miss you. You would have loved being an uncle to Alex and William and a big cousin / honourary uncle to all the other babies that have been born. This year at regatta after your race, there were lots of babies and toddlers around - the next generation! I am now married to a Yorkshireman called Chris and have a daughter called Zoe. She is a little monkey! It makes me so sad that you won't meet her or she meet you. She has already heard all about you though! You will live on, in our hearts and memories.
Rest in peace.

To Jocelyn, Nilawan, Tom and the Waller famiy.

I studied at Trinity at the same time as Ed and had the pleasure of meeting him through several friends we had in common. I have just wiped my eyes from wathching the TV programme "Disasters" about the Bali bomb. Mr. Waller you spoke so beautifully and so accurately about Ed who showed indifference for difference!!
Its so hard to believe that its 8 years since that memorial service in Dromineer. I have since married and my husband is Brazilian and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first baby due on Christmas Eve. I found myself nodding and sobbing as you described how Ed embraced all cultures and all religions. The world needs more of his kind.
I can't imagine how much you must miss him. My very best to you all and it was lovely to see the programme and his smiley face exactly as I remember it pushing his bike around Front Square in Trinity!
