* AGM XXIX
* A Personal Message
Our next AGM will take place at 1100 this upcoming Wednesday, 19 October at Grey’s Monument in Newcastle - or rather outside Pret a Manger nearby!
I hope you can make it.
A PERSONAL MESSAGE
Over the last two weeks or so, I’ve received a great many messages from from you wonderful truckshunters. You have left Comments on the blog itself; you have txted me, emailed me, telephoned me and sent me many cards and letters.
I don’t know how to even begin to thank you all. I hungrily soaked up the lovely words of sympathy and understanding that you sent me and passed them on to my family - especially to my brother Barry and Jean, his wife.
Your loving and gentle messages served as points of welcome light in the dark tunnel we were walking through and I will always be grateful to the great many of you who took the time and trouble to contact me.
Just as countless millions of other sons and daughters have had to do, so must I begin to try and knit together a new kind of life without the extraordinary and very special lady I was always proud to call my Mam. This new path is unfamiliar to me and I know it will take me some time to get used to it.
I’d be very happy for you to keep me company along the way.
