    Just a quick one and nit sure if its in the right place please move if not mods.

    Is there anyone from the manchester area going to the funeral. I cant rely on our car for a lift as the clutch has gone but would srill like to attend.

    I also know there are others that would like to go but lack the transport, would it be worth doing some kind of car pooling? £10 each theown in towards the petrol should mean that everyone pays a fair ammoumt for a lift and the driver isnt out of pocket too.

    Just a thought

    Dave

    If possible, I'd like to be able to come. £10 for a car pool sounds good. Not sure if only meeting Drew a few times counts as meaning I could come, but I'd like to be able to pay my respects if that's alright

    I'll be going up too, from Bolton. I currently have room for 2 people (or 3 skinny ones). I'm still wondering if a minibus might be a workable option.

    Didn't make the funeral myself :( but just stepped out of the office there for a couple of minutes of silence and contemplation in my own way.

    Thoughts with all.

    Lit a candle for Drew and filled a glass to toast a nice guy. Did not know him but may he rest in peace. May the Goddess enfold him in her loving wings and keep him safe forever more.

    I just sat quietly at home and put Dave's tribute video on at 12:30.

    So long Drew, in your short time here you touched a lot of folk, both online and offline.

    It was emotional guys

    Drews brother and best mate made some heartfelt speeches

    the church was over filled people were standing in the foyer packed in like sardines

    he truly did touch the lives of many people
