I'm so saddened by this news...thank you to Annie for telling us. As others have said it's like losing a friend, I often think of Deric's words in my everyday life. Thank you for the laughter and the tears lovely man. My thoughts go out to Aileen and the family. x

Denis Kilcommons wrote a beautiful piece about Deric in the Huddersfield Examiner today which I thankfully found online. My thoughts and prayers are with Aileen and family. Jan

Even though I knew this would happen someday I always hoped that it wouldn't be so soon. So I was really shocked to find Annie's words a few minutes ago. Deric seems to be one of those persons that you just cannot expect not to be with us anymore - and in different ways he of course will always be around through his books and CDs and especially through his contributions to this board which always showed us he cared about the people around here. The last thing also goes for Annie - thank you so much for thinking about us in such troubled times.
My thoughts are with Aileen, Annie and the whole Longden-family!

This world is a much poorer place now - but maybe theres a wonderful welcome for such a great guy elsewhere.

My very deepest condolences to Annie, Aileen, and family. As so many have said, Deric was loved by us all, and brought us pleasure and laughter beyond measure. Thank you for being so thoughtful as to post on here amidst your grief, Annie. May the love of all on here be some tiny comfort to you, and testament to the wonderful man that Deric was. We are so privileged to have 'known' him through his writing.

What a nice way to put it Chris , I'm sure Arthur and all Derics other furry friends were waiting patiently by the rainbow bridge and its lovely to think of them all together again. His books have helped me through hard times too, I'm not sure her even knew what a profound effect he had on many of us.....xxx

Having posted a few messages on this Board in the past & made a very dear friend through it, I am so sorry to hear the sad news. It was lovely to chat to like minded people with the odd adage every so often from the lovely Deric himself. I was lucky enough to chat to him once, and he was so much fun, its like losing a close friend. I would like very much to pass on my sincere condolencies to all the family, my thought sre with you all. God bless Deric, you will be sadly missed xxx

Thank you for letting us all know the awful news, Annie. I hope Deric had a peaceful passing. He meant so much to us all here. My condolances to all the family, especially Aileen. I didn't even know Deric personally but I shall miss him dreadfully. Is there an address I can send flowers or should I donate money to a charity Deric loved or supported? I'd like to do something in his memory. x x

Thank you so much for letting us know, what a sad time for everyone, I'm sure we will all miss him terribly and what a contribution he has made, he goes down in history as a very great man and I hope he is happy wherever he is now. Much love to everyone xx
