So sorry to hear this news. My mom, stepdad and I followed your father's career. Went to see him fight in lots of places. Their names were Edna and Sam Tym, I don't know if your Mom will remember them. My stepdad was a butcher with a shop on Abbeydale Road. My mom is also suffering from this horrible disease.

Of course Mum remembers Edna and Sam. I too remember the names. They used to visit Mum and Dad when we lived in Wincobank and presumably when we lived in Nether Edge. Lovely to hear from you. Bless you and your mum and i pray your suffering is as minimal as it can be. Nx
