    RIP Dave and condolences to your family. You'll be sorely missed on MSE, you were always a helpful and polite poster with a great attitude to life even in adversity.

    Very saddened to hear this, reading his blog he was a very brave and honest bloke. His humour shines through and it seems we have lost a good one.

    Condolences to his family at this time x

    Good girl Duke. If I was up in North Lancashire where I belong, then I'd go too. I would wear my Pompey football shirt.
