Hi Sandra,I know you!!! Been to your house with my mate Tommy(didn't you live round Marsh Lane area?)
before we both joined the navy.He went in the Merch.and ended up on BP oil tankers as navigating officer
and I joined the RN and ended up in submarines.He married another Grammar girl
Catrin Roberts .
Sorry but I have to tell you Tommy passed away from lung cancer just before his 50th birthday
in 1992.I went to UK from Canada to see him the week before ,held him in my arms because the cancer had spread
all over his body and he could not walk or talk,told him I loved him like the brother I never had, got the plane home and he passed away while I was in the air :cry:
I am in touch with Tommy's sister Margaret(another Grammar girl) and in fact when my mother came to Canada in 1964 I lived with Toms
mum and dad when I came home on leave to Bootle
A great friend.
Sandra I am sorry this is in the form of a "normal" post but at the moment my PM is having a bit of a temper
tantrum and just will not accept any personal messages
