We haven't seen each other for over thirty years since I moved away from Barrow but I have never forgotten the friendship we had. I have searched for years to try and find what was happening in your life, today I shed more than a tear at this news.

My sincerest condolences to your family. I am sure like I do they remember you for the fun and lively person you were.

In Sympathy,
