2007 World Cup Rugby Champions!

Pippa and friends celebrating World Cup Win 1995

PIppa was a great Rugby fan. It was so very sad that she wasn't here to see her team, The Springboks, win the Rugby World Cup for only the second time ever.

But there are those who believe she and Kieran used their heavenly connections to ensure their win! :)

Invictus

 
  Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul. 

William Ernest Henley
