Gillian, Anne & Richard. I am so sorry to hear of Michael’s passing. I remember when he was a teenager coming to the office to visit your Dad. It seems he had his Dad’s sense of humour. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I’m so sad to hear of Michaels’ passing. He was far too young to go. Sadly, I did not get to know him but David and Norma did last year. They tell me he was a great character with a fine sence of humour, definately a chp off the old block. My thoughts are with you all and I shall be raising a glass to him and all my cousins tomorrow. RIP Michael.
