Laddie de Lumley
Couldnt make Lappy's funeral this morning as I had a couple of meetings but popped into The Moulders Arms on my way back home which is where the Wake was.
Got to meet Lappy's best mate George and also one of his sisters Susan (he was one of 6 kids).
His sister was moved to tears when I told her of the £700 or so that had been collected for Macmillan Nurses through our members on here. Neither Susan or George could believe the generosity of RTG.
I also got prermission to contact SAFC and ask for something to be placed in the programme.
There was a funeral card produced for his death with a picture of Sean on the front. On the reverse were the words of a song he wrote. Not sure if its seemly to post the images or not. I guess if a page is set up for members who have died that may be a fitting tribute.
When I told George about the Board one of his comments was "i bet you all got into some arguments with him". I just smiled.
Quite frankly I´m a bit in shock.
I hardly get on here these days so it was a shock for me to see this post. I knew Lappy was ill but I didn´t know things had progressed to this.
I always enjoyed his posts whether I agreed with them or not. Lappy lad, you will be sadly missed by a lot of us on here. You were a canny fellow (for a Kibblesworth lad ).
My thoughts and sympathies to his family and friends.
