Please see the tribute in the Post of April 2016
It was a shock today, on reading the Derbyshire Times, to learn that Bill Mountford has passed away.
Bill was a staunch, loyal and in every sense a generous member of our group. He did not have an easy journey after his laryngectomy operation and it was a great pleasure to see him finally achieve a new method of speech last year.
He shared a love of fishing with several others in the group and most meetings saw him sharing the latest joke he had heard, though until recently that was done by him using his notepad.
Bill will be missed but not forgotten. We send our condolences to his brother Dave and the rest of his family.
It is with great sadness that we have learned that Brian Roberts has passed away.
Brian has been a member of our group for over 4 years and this news has been a dreadful shock to us all. He has shown tremendous courage and determination in the face of many episodes of poor health. He has attended and enjoyed most of our social events in recent years, along with daughter Pam.
Brian will be greatly missed and Pam and the rest of Brian’s family are at the forefront of our thoughts at the moment. Brian joined us in our trip to York in September and several of us were with him at the meeting of Heading Forward only last week.
