My sincere condolences to you and your family Ryewolf.
We are never old enough to lose a parent...they are the rock we cling to when the world is unkind.
Rest in Peace Geoff, your earthly work is done.

Re: RIP Dad - Geoff Edwardson

I am so sorry for your sad loss, Ryewolf. It sounds like your dad had a very full and interesting life. I bet there were lots of stories he was able to tell you over the years and lots of laughs. Although his passing will leave a big hole in your life remember the happy memories he has left behind not just for you but for all the people whose lives he touched.

Thanks Dotti, yes, he was a great practical joker and had a rye sense of humour - he would have thought a funeral on a Friday 13th hilarious....


When he first went into the care home he told everyone and the staff that his sister was a pole dancer..... despite her being in her 70's
