General Elson go on to the stage and being his speech

Dear all respective Knights of the Phoenix

Today we gather here in this hall to remember our honored General,

I still remember when I first met Gen Gootch at Bridgewater. I was with BG Amish for a defend mission. We had some drinks in the tavern before we moved out to our designation; he told us that he would like to join The KOP.

When we checked his profile and also talked to the Chief Recruitment Officers, we noticed that he failed his interview because he had about 25 TP but none coming from players. We felt that he may not have been active or that all the people from Bridgewater didn’t like him for some reason, thus no one wanted to give him a trust point.

After the battle ended, and we once again returned to Bridgewater, we met him again and he asked us to accept him. After BG Amish and I had a discussion, we both agreed that we should give this young man a chance to prove himself. We also told him that he should be getting to know people in the town and should have received trust points from people.

From that day onwards, he has worked very hard and earned respect from all other knights. He followed me to Cornwall in the joint operation with CRG when Chupa robbed him. He was seriously injured and starved but he never complaint a words even though he was angry.

Together with Gen Raythouse, he also helped to restore Salisbury when the mayor (Wulfric) betrayed the town. He defended Southampton, Winchester and many other towns from being attacked by the WOS.

It has been my honour to work with Gen Gootch and Gen Raythouse. They were the peoples that have made KOP proud. They were the peoples that made KOP flag fly over the land of England.

It is a disaster to KOP that we have loss such a good man. I hereby asked all of you to come forward, join me to remain silent for a minute, and remember what Gen Gootch had done for the country and the KOP.

At this moment, he can't control his tears and they start falling from his eyes


Iubar - Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2007 9:52 pm
Iubar sat in the crowd, silent, admiring. For he had not know Gen. Gooch personally, yet the fame of his deeds was well known to him. The sudden weakness GOA Elson displayed as he started to shed tears carried a lot of strenght in its own. For it requires a brave man to show his pain in front of his troops.

Birds stopped whistling, wind stopped blowing, and for a moment it seemed that even the clock stopped ticking. So intense was the silence following GOA Elson's speech. And Iubar? The lump in his throat was barely swallowed, or also he showed a sparkling diamond in the corner of his eye.

A tribute to a hero.

Standing with the men who had come for the memorial service, wanfeng could not help but think of all the times he spent with Gen Gooch going through the applications to KoP. As Gen Elson asked for a minute of silence, he too could not hold back his tears as he observed the General of the Army crying for his dear brother in arms, and tears started to flow from his eyes as he say a prayer in memory of the fallen and his family, especially 1Sgt Lady Gwyn.

Amarth - Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2007 10:57 pm

(PVT) Amarth sat at the back of the room sitting quietly taken in the speech an all the emotion put into it. I could not help think "If I could be half the man this Knight was I would get a burial like this someday Jah forbid my time be snuff out too soon."....Then sits there with the thoughts runing through his head of what a grand man this was an yet he felt shame for not knowing him personally


Palestine_Steel - Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2007 11:01 pm

Palestine Steel stands there with his men, look up high and proud because Gen.Gooch was a great knight, yet at the same time saddened by his death.

He has gone to a better place, he is with the Lord.

Palestine Steel looks at pvt. Amarth and says:Stand up soldier with the rest of the men!

Palestine Steel looks on the side and sees the tear on pvt. Iubar and says with a weak voice:
It is okay to cry private. Just keep your head up! Gen. Gooch is upthere now.

Palestine Steel then looks up and says: We will miss you, but always remembered!

Lt. Johnthan Grey - Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2007 11:07 pm

Johnthan sitting there with the other knights, listening to the generals words, reguard Gen. Gooch, he was a bother at arms and a family member his cousin. Johnthan was sadden that he was unable to get to know his cousin liked he hoped duty all seemed to keep them away from each other. Johnthan just sat there a tear rolling down his cheek at the kind words the general spoke. during the moment of silence he said a prayer for him and 1st Lady Gwyn.

Hristijan - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 12:29 am

Hristijan was sitting in the crowd, silent, saddened, but knowing that Gen. Gooch had a happy life and that his name would forever by remembered.

Jah needed a great soldier with a good hearth, Gooch fitted that description...

Hristijan then bows his head for the minute of silence...

LadyGwyn - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 1:06 am

Gwyn sat in silence during the memorial for her late husband and father to Kristian, who was seated on her lap. She prayed for her Gooch, for Kristian, and for the other fallen knights. She missed him and prayed for the strength to raise their son alone.

Tasite - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 2:24 am

Being new and not really knowing General Gooch. Tasite sits in the back listing to General Elson's speech. Looking around at evey one in attendance. I couldn't help but notice that he touched many lives. Made me wish I could have gotten to know the General a little better.

Private Tucana sat in the back of the hall and listened to the General's speech. Although she did not personally know the General she could tell he had touched many lives, especially General Elson and Lt. Johnathan. She could not help being moved by the words she was hearing. She sat back attentively listening. Wishing she had the opportunity to meet the General before he had passed.


GenRay(Loren Soth) - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 6:49 am

Staying close to the back of the room, he watches the ceremony. A deep sadness fills his heart as flashes from the past come to the present. His lose of his furniture. The turtle soup. Many times of laughter and good times spent with one of his closest friends.

When there is a break in the procession he quickly goes the coffin, "My friend. It seems I could not get back in time to greet you as I wanted to. You always were there when I needed someone to depend and trust. My days in the KOP passed faster with you by my side and your help with guiding our fellow knights. Already my heart is torn with grief at your passing. Please stay safe and remember that no power can keep you from me."

With these quiet words he pulls his cowl tighter around his head and makes straight for the door. The tears in his eyes blurring his vision he runs through the door and out into the world.

panagiotis - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 8:59 pm

knowing thegooch corporal panagiotis has a sorrowfull look that a few do notice and no words come out of his mouth,he was one of he persons that introduced him to kop and gave him his trust,like many other soldiers he died in the service of Enlgland,and after some thoughtpanagiotis only said:"what a shame,he was a good person after all...",and and ook his place in the more shadowy corner of the ceremonial room

NikkiTom - Posted: Sun Jun 24, 2007 10:58 pm

Nik took a seat at the back, listening at General's touching speech. He lowered his head and said a prayer for another worthy soul lost.


Jaseph - Posted: Tue Jun 26, 2007 9:09 am

Jaseph hearing the words of General Elson and seeing the late general's widow with their son, and so many valiant warriors overcome with emotion, cant help ask himself: Why Jah, why this man, why now?. Jaseph says a prayer for the fallen general and his family and his comrades in arms. He knows Jah ways are not our ways. Must be that the good general had reached that perfection of character that it was his time to join the assembly of the blessed. I wish I had known you sir, but I give you my word, I shall do my best to serve valiantly and follow your example. Your brothers and sisters in KOP will look after your wife and son. They shall never be in want. Rest in peace thou valiant knight of Jah.

correus - Posted: Tue Jun 26, 2007 10:24 am

Correus silently enters and stands in the back reflecting on his memories of the Honorable Gooch.

Palestine_Steel - Posted: Tue Jun 26, 2007 11:17 am

As the procession is about the begin, Palestine Steel decides to head back to the room with the coffin. At a corner in the hallway, a mysterious man runs and bump into Palestine Steel.

Sorry about that, Palestine Steel says as he lift his head to look at the mysterious man.

He takes a good look at him as if he met him before, then turns around to walk back to his destination.
Then a tought comes to Palestine Steels mind and as he turns back to speak to the mysterious man, Palestine Steel says:

The man is gone, he dissaperead in less then a second
It was Raythouse, Palestine Steel says to himself...

We'll meet again old friend!

wanfeng - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 12:09 am

After the moment of silence and personal prayer for the family Wanfeng stepped up beside General Elson and pray Dearest Jah, we thank thee for thy great faithfulness for granting us the privilege to know General Gooch Grey. We thank you for his example that he has set for all of us here in KoP. We thank you that Sgt Major Gwyn Grey was able to stand by him and support him in his duties with KoP and the County. We are gathered today to remember all the wonderful things that our General had done. We pray now that you will help us keep in mind his great example as we serve hand in hand our nation, England. Be with Sgt Maj Gwyn Grey as she brings up their child. Now as we go forth from here may thy grace and mercy be with us all every step of the way. Thank you Jah, by Christos great and mighty name we pray. Amen.
He steps back and await for General Elson to dismiss the gathering.

elson88 - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 12:26 am

After Col Wanfeng prayed, Gen Elson request eveyone to stand up

"For the Knights of the Phoenix


Salute to the General Gooch Grey. "


LadyGwyn - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 1:42 am

Gwyn stood and saluted before she had to retake her seat as she broke down in tears.

Iubar - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 1:59 am
Iubar saluted, then bowed to Lady Gwyn as soon as military code allowed him to. "Are you alright, Milady?"

Jaseph - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 2:12 am

Stands and salutes the image of General Gooch. He goes over to lady Gwyn and sits next to her and gently pats her arm and hands her a handkerchief. I am so sorry for your loss Mam. If you need anything, anything at all, please feel free to let me know. I wish I had the words to express my sorrow for your loss, you and your son shall be in my prayers, and your brothers and sisters are here for you.

Jaseph stands up and salutes the Master Sargeant. I am honored to serve with you madam.

Jaseph slowly walks out of the hall, when he is outside and out of sight of Lady Gwynn, he begins to weep.

LadyGwyn - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 4:30 am
Gwyn shakes her head "I thought I could handle this but I don't know." She saw a Private not sure of his name yet "Thank you" She still wasn't sure how her son is handling things as he doesn't comprehend such things as death yet, all he knows is his daddy went away.

correus - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 8:38 am

Correus slides in quietlly and listens in silence. Another friend lost in the war against evil. It pleases his heart to see so many new re-cruits here to Honor TheGooch. He thinks to himself, it must please dear LadyGwyn even more that her husband is so honored.

Amarth - Posted: Thu Jun 28, 2007 10:39 am

*He holds the salute longer an with the longest silence in the room*

Coming to attention, Correus Salutes the memory and deeds of the fallen officer.

capoeiracrara - Posted: Fri Jun 29, 2007 2:47 pm

Ada walks in to pay her respects and stands up straight saluting. She looks down as she starts saying some quiet prayers to herself.

Inspira - Posted: Sat Jun 30, 2007 5:47 am

Inspira comes to attention and then salutes.
