Sad News

I have just spoken to David Morris who has had some terrible news. His partner. Ruth, who a lot of you will remember from the early days of the forum, passed away on Tuesday.

He asked me to let everyone here know and to say that the funeral will be on Thursday at 2:00pm if anyone would like to attend. I'll update this when I have some more information.

Ruth was a warm and generous person, and this is far too untimely.

I'd like to remember her as the person who was remarkably kind about my Green Tea Jelly contribution to David's birthday party this summer (certainly kinder than it deserved) and who tried to persuade me that Pork Scratchings were an ideal diet food.

It would be nice if we could do something in memoriam.
