Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb will be honored at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral in September during a public memorial service.
His body will be laid to rest rest during a funeral near his home in Thame, Oxfordshire. His spirit will be remembered with music by the Bee Gees and Roy Orbison, along with his favorite hymns Jerusalem and I Vow to Thee My Country.
Robin-John Gibb, (His Son) has said that it was actually liver failure, not cancer, that caused his father’s demise. Gibb underwent a blood transfusion just before his death that gave him 12 more hours to live, as his son explained:
“He wanted to live. The last option was a blood transfusion, which gave him another 12 hours. My father always told us he wanted us to try everything, no matter how futile it may seem … We watched him go and told him we loved him.”
We will be thinking of friends and family on this sad day.
