From Belinda Joyce-Ludlow [Tony's daughter]
Mel, Hope you are your family are
well. You have certainly spent and
lot of time and hard work on
the website and its lovely
to see all the pictures.
However, my brother, sisters
and family have found it
really upsetting to see the
pictures of Dad in his last
few weeks of life. AS these
don’t represent the man we
all knew and loved so
dearly, I would be grateful
if you could have them
removed; the ones I have
found are - Julie & Tony
Xmas 2012, Tony & Dave with
June’s trike, Megan, Tony &
Amy Xmas 2012 – but if you
spot any others could you
remove those too . Many thanks,
Belinda, family and to anyone viewing my 'Tribute to Tony' ......
The pictures in question have been moved and the link to them warns
web viewers that they MAY be distressing. They do
however, show that Tony never gave up and REQUESTED to attend recent
family functions. Hope this 'picture move' helps.

From Kenneth & Betty Grace [MC & Organist for
Many thanks Mel for the lovely
tribute you sent us of Tony’s life. It must have took some
painstaking hours for you to put it on the comp. We often get
Joe’s emails that are originally sent by you. I phoned Doreen
today as I had let Geoff Stephenson – another supertrouper who
is holidaying in Spain know about Tony passing away and he
phoned me for me to pass his condolences on to Doreen.
As you say it was really nice seeing you
again although we wish it would have been in better
circumstances. You look after yourself and June and all the best
to you both.
Kind regards Betty and Ken.

living in Ravenscar]
Thanks for helping us have a good time and
making us welcome.
Maybe now you may be able to see why Tony and me got on so well.
Thank all who you bump into, or if you do a piece on your web-site
send them all our sincere thanks for the welcome and best wishes.
Thanks very much Mel, Graham & Jean Thirkill
Graham & Jean - it was good of you to travel so far
and shows your love for your old pal Tony.
Also good to meet 'face to face' rather than emails & Skype !
