Just a reminder that Tony's funeral is tomorrow, Friday 14th January at 11.30.
Cemetery Road (off Warrington Road),
All Tony's friends are welcome to attend.
Phil, what a brilliant eulogy. You guys have really done Tony proud. There must be hundreds of people on here who, like me, are thinking, "I wish I'd known him."
Good by fella all our love Neil, Susan, Phoebe, Izaak and Noah.
