Gone but absolutely never forgotten!

Our dear friend David whom I met on the Cancer Research website several months ago sadly lost his battle to cancer in the early hours of this morning.

People use the word inspiration too lightly at times however David was a true inspiration to all who came into contact with him....his final log on my blog on 02nd March was to wish me a Happy Birthday..we planned to meet up in Matlock for a couple of bottles of beer and a good meal with the gang and when I am well enough I plan to do that in his honour and raise a glass...

David 02nd March 2011

"Many Happy Returns big fella - have called in the cavalry to my hospital bedside with suitable provisions to enable a belated toast - Boddies seems to be going down well!"

At rest without pain now 'Big Fella'

Much Love
