Thank you so much Shirley, I'm reading his autobiography at the moment. What an amazing person. He was the best of us. I'm still in shock, even though i've been expecting it all week.

You are more than welcome David. He missed out on so much time with his family, he could have came out of prison very angry and bitter, but he didn't. That says so much about the kind of man he was. It is very sad, but he has been really ill for a long time now. At least he isn't suffering any more :hug:

You are right, actually I was hoping and praying earlier in the week that his suffering wouldn't go on for long :hug:
