A thank you message from David Collyer
Thursday 0th June 2016
Following the horrific death of his wife Doreen (pictured above) on Sunday, David Collyer has sent the following message from Australia.
Whilst it is a reply to a personal message, I am sure he won't object to it being printed here as a thank you to all who have sent condolences by e-mail, Facebook or Twitter.
"Thank you for your message and thoughts. I'm a bit devastated and in a daze at the moment - how are you supposed to cope with this?
"The funeral will be here in Perth next week but given the incredible level of support and love coming from all of our old friends back in the UK, I have arranged a 'Celebration of Doreen's Life' to be held at 12:00 noon on Wednesday 22nd June 2016 at Neston CC.
"If you are around it would be good to catch up.
"Once again, thanks for your message - please pass on my thanks to anyone else who has been thinking about us."
