RIP Diana Brogden

Sad to report that Garry's (ALB) wife Diana lost her battle against cancer on Sunday morning.

I know a few people here met her and I think we would like to pass on our condolences

I am so desperately sorry and wish Garry and family nothing but the very best.
May they all find the strength they will need.

Words are not enough at times like this, all I can say is that you are in my thoughts.

Oh no. Bloody hell. That's awful, sad news and my heart goes out to him and his family.

I know exactly what he's going through (it's 3 years tomorrow since Ruth died). But I still can't find the right words to say. All I will say is that Garry, whenever, further down the line, should you want or need to unload or talk to someone who's been through it too, feel free to PM me and we can swap tel. numbers maybe. Completly up to you, if and whenever. Again, I'm so sorry to hear this.

I would like to echo what Anna and Nick have said.

Terrible news.

I had no idea.

Garry, I'm so sorry to hear this. Like most people, I can't find the right words but, for what it's worth, you're in my thoughts and if there's ever anything I can do to help please let me know.
