Aces is right, enjoy yourself and live for today none of us know when our number is up.
I learnt that lesson the hard way losing my partner 5 years ago when she was 46, happend very quick was only diagnosed with liver cancer 3 weeks before she passed away. It cetainly changes your outlook on life.


Sorry to hear that mate, life's shitty sometimes.


Cheers Aces, took awhile to get over it but have moved on (you have to), time does help, just never forget the great times we had.

I do the exact same thing when I go to our daughters grave SW, and you cannot help but look at the ages with many taken far too early.

My great grandad died of a heart attack, my grandad died of a heart attack and my dad has already had 2 heart bypass operations, had stents fitted and now has one of those pig valve things (make for some great jokes :D). Chances are I will have heart trouble, but the doctors have said other than a bit of healthy living on my part there isn't a great deal I can do about it.

I have said it several times on here before, don't worry about anything just live life to the full.

When I visited Yorkshire recently I visited the grave where both my parents are buried. Dad was 93 when he died, Mum was 88. The two adjacent gravestones are for a child aged 2 and a baby aged 18 months. Always chokes me up. :cry:

Agree, a strong willed, in your face no nonsense person who stated often over many years of his loathing of a certain section of the community but who died having worked with and gaining a friendship with one of his greatest foes. theres a lesson to us all there, no mater how we can "hate" each other, theres always a link between us, somewhere that can spark friendship.

RIP

Really sad news. I saw Harold play many times. What a good player he was, worked his socks off for 90 minutes. Big mate of the great John Charles.

RIP

My lads just mentioned it. He used to potter up and down the putting green at our golf club at Howley Hall, hitting a few puts, chatting to folk. My lad got to know him really well, he was a true gent. My lads upset by this, but i old him, 90 was a good age.
