Default Very sad news - David Bamford - Irish guys

You will remember I posted news of the Irish Boys a few weeks ago, asking for prayers for David Bamford. This morning, I received the sad news that he had, very sadly died, last Thursday. I am sure those of you who met him in May 2001, will want to know. I attach the email below.

Bru,

Dad passed away on Thursday morning. Funeral
yesterday.

It all happened very quickly - only in hospital for 24
hours.

At the funeral service, Rev. Erskine mentioned Dad's
favorite song - "Shadows", and read out a line.

oh dear, how sad. I was just yesterday looking at Massey 2001 pics and wondering how things were with him.
Very, very sad. I'm sure the e-mail I have for Jonathon is out of date so please pass on my deepest regrets for his sad loss.

And pass on mine too, Bru. He was a very nice man. What a shame.

Brings tears to my eyes, Bru. They were a joy to meet and I remember talking with the father and his remark that Lightfoot is quite literally a genius.
Please pass on my condolences.
Kimberly

I'm very sorry to hear this Bru. Dan probably has emailed you already about the card he had signed and was going to send. Such a shame. I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet David. Please pass my codolences on to Jonathan.

Thanks everybody for your words. I shall be printing out all messages and sending them to Jonathan, together with the card which sadly will arrive too late for his Dad to enjoy.
Thanks, Jen, for the report. I wish I could have been there!
