Good friend
Started by: truckerdave (2337)   Report abuse
I'd just like to forward my deepest sympathy to the family of Chris Tomlinson from Wellfield road, Beech Hill who died at the end of last week, Chris was a good friend and we have had many a good time over the years, he will be sadly missed,he was always ready to help people out, he enjoyed trials riding on his bike and used to do pro motorcross (until the organisers found out he had an artificial leg)
R.I.P mate you are badly missed

Funeral is at St Annes church on Beech Hill at 1:15 monday

rbilly, I understand your feelings and can relate to why you felt this way. People who are well into their latter years and still have their parents are very lucky indeed and I sometimes think they don't realise this.

I lost my dad when I was fifteen and my mum on my 49th birthday and would have given anything to have them back (but not suffering). However, I recall many, many times when working or associating with others having to bite my lip when they tacklessly talked about the presents they'd bought for their mums\dads on Mother's\Father's Days and birthdays without a care or thought about others around them were upset and gutted. They appeared oblivous that some in their circle had lost their nearest and dearest and could not share the joy they were experiencing - I found that cold and callous. However, it has made me very careful to watch that I always consider others and their situations.

thanks you far that it made me laugh :P its hard but im sure it will get better i hope x

I cant understand why you get mad at older people still living, it reminds me of an old series that used to come on the tv, "Logans Run" when people turned a certain age they were terminated, live and let live I say, a lot of the older generation are worth 100 % more than the younger ones
My Mum has just turned 80 and I wouldn't swap her for the world
