What can I say.
There was a thread on here posted by Hazey's sister and wife stating that sadly he died early this morning and dozens of you had posted your respects on it.
Unfortunately there were two diverging versions of the thread in different forums rather than a re-direct linking the two.
In my efforts to tidy this up, I have only gone and deleted them both (maybe Hazey is having a final laugh at me!!)
I can only apologise, and say although I never met the lad, I am gutted like everyone else.
Message from Liz and Mel was:
This is Liz and Mel. How do you put this into words? other than we want to let you know that Graeme (Hazey as you know him) died at 4a.m. This morning. This blog and board have meant more to him than words can say and we know he would have wanted all of you to get the news as soon as possible. Right up to a few hours before his death he asked us to check the board for new messages from you guys. So many of you have said he was inspirational. This gave him great comfort and made him realise what a wonderful person he was. We are going to start a thread on the board for you to leave messages for him. And in a few weeks time we are planning a memorial nights in both the South and in the North East. We'd very much like as many of you (his virtual friends) to come along and celebrate his life with us.
Thank you for everything. Keep checking his blog as we would all like to tell you more and expand on this message.
