Sad News

A couple of weekends ago I made a visit back to Hornsea and met up with old school friends Ian, Roy and Paul.   We shared the inevitable memories and stories from the (good?) old days and parted promising to meet up more often than we have in recent times.  It was a shock to get a call from Ian saying that Roy had died  of a heart attack at the end of last week.  Can’t quite believe he’s gone.  I know folk say this sort of thing in these circumstances but Roy was genuinely one of the nicest blokes you could hope to meet and his brother’s blog sums it up with the phrase “I really liked him”.  As kids we both lived in the same street and had known each other from when we started primary school.  He’ll be greatly missed by his family and friends.
