It was the 19th December.

Yes, he was a good friend of mine for over 30 years.

Thanks for the link - I knew Hugh was doing this and I was putting him in touch with a few of Mike's friends who could supply himwith info and "stories".

Mike didn't want a funeral and his family are doing as he wished - but there is a get-together being planned where Mikes friends can get together and give him a send-off, but I don't know the date yet.

A great loss and sadly missed.
