I have not been on here since the bad news. Like others said it was like losing a dear friend who opened his heart and life to us all in his looks. I still state the broccoli on the mantelpiece story, I cried laughing at that!
I have been in the areas mentioned in his early books, I see sign posts and stories pop in my head we the places in question
I even quoted from one of his books tonight. I think i have read them so much i can almost quote word for word
Hearing from Annie is great, a connection to the great Deric. I wish i had gone to one of his talks, my mum and Nan raved about them.
Love to his family.

Happy belated birthday Diana, and hope your ribs are on the mend very soon. Love to you and all my friends here. Jan

Hello Everyone. I had my Big 7-Oh! birthday at the beginning of August ... and I got a Kindle! The first thing I did was to download all Deric's work that can only be read via this method, and I'm loving it. Thank you so much, Annie for doing this. The only snag is since then, I have to rest as I've strained a ligament in my ribs. Resting is ok - but it hurts when I laugh - and I'm laughing a lot with Deric! He still lives on in all our hearts. Hope everyone else is keeping well. Love to all, especially Deric's family. Diana, Southampton xx

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us more of Deric's wonderful words via Kindle. I now have them on my iPad. I have next week off work and am relishing the thought of sitting down with a cuppa and crying bitter sweet tears of laughter and a little sadness.
Thank you also for not forgetting us here, as we don't forget you, and keeping us updated.
Love to all your family and Deric's readers and have a good summer.
Love Maz xxx

I have not been on for a while. I was so saddened by Deric's passing, but I enjoyed the comments from his other 'friends' and im sure he would like us to keep in touch. He was such a lovely, friendly man it is nice that we can keep up to date and post our comments on here, maybe even for his family to read. I can actually say that he was instrumental in me making a very good friend in Bea, as without tbis page we would never have known about each other. God bless you Deric, you are very much missed. Sending all good wishes to you all and to his family xx

Hi Annie, just got Radio Times Take 3 on my Kindle - thanks so much for letting us know that it was available. Probably going to gloat a bit before I get to reading it - and then be sad once I've read it! All best wishes, Bea

For Yvonne, prayers for your quick recovery, and best wishes on your new venture!

Hi Aileen, Annie and all Deric's family, have been thinking of you all over the last days, especially. Sending you blessings from South Africa. Kind regards,

Hi. I, like Sugarbees, have also not been on for a long time for the same reason. Even though I had never met Deric it was still a blow as he was my favourite author (along side Gerald Durrell). I haven't been able to post or read his books for a while.
I hope everyone is doing well, including Aileen, Annie and all the family. I shall have to try and get here more often.
I have been off work due to a bad hip (then fractured my rib too) for 6 months and have self taught myself cake decorating and I'm getting busier and busier with orders....not sure how I'll have time for work!
Any way, love to all,
Yvonne x x

Deric's words, warmth and humour live on for all who loved him. We are the lucky few who were closest and we can smile at the many many fond memories and times we shared with this generous and loving man.
Love to you all today and every day.
