Es ist schon teilweise echt respektlos wie mit dem Thema umgegangen wird. Wir sind in diesen schweren Stunden in Gedanken bei den Eltern, Familie und Freunde von Stephen und wünschen ihnen sowie den anderen vier Mtigliedern, die einen Freund und Bruder verloren haben, ganz viel Kraft.
Die aktuelle Nachricht von Boyzone an die Fans:
Wednesday 14th October 2009
Yesterday, Stephen's body was released by Spanish authorities following an autopsy that confirmed Stephen had died from natural causes. He is now lying in a chapel of rest in a small village in the hills of Majorca whilst repatriation formalities continue. Ronan, Keith, Mikey & Shane visited Stephen's parents in Dublin on Tuesday to pay their respects and confirm the family's final wishes for Stephen. The Boyz plan to return to Majorca on Friday to bring their brother back home to Dublin.
There will be a private family mass in Dublin on Friday night followed by a funeral service at St Lawrence O'Toole church on Saturday at midday. A further memorial service will be held in London, where Stephen & Andrew shared their home, at a date and venue to be confirmed in the near future.
Ronan, Keith, Mikey & Shane would once more like to thank everyone for the great many messages of condolence they have received from all over the world. Seeing the love and warmth that so many people have felt for Stephen has been a true comfort for them over the past few days.
They again ask that their privacy is respected at this time.
Everyone involved with boyzone sends their deepest sympathies to Stephen's family and his many friends all over the world.
