Hi all, Just dropping in to say a big friendly Hi. Hope everyone is OK and bearing up in the wake of the sad news. I still have to think hard before I believe it. Can only imagine how Aileen and the rest of the family are feeling. It is a comfort knowing there is a little piece of Deric (actually, several little pieces) just a bookshelf away. Jocelyn, amazing news - many many Congratulations! Love to all, Kat x

Well done Jocelyn. I will look out for it.
I hope the forum keeps going. I have "met" so many kind, wonderful, like-minded people through it. I think the grind of daily life takes its toll.

Best of luck on your book Jocelyn. Susan and Heather, I know how you feel. We've been very busy here this summer with guests coming and going, but I've started with Diana's Story last week and plan to read all the others again. I'm finding comfort in them... as we all know, that was one of Deric's most precious gifts. Thinking of Aileen and family, and sending my love to all Deric's fans. Jan

Jocelyn, great news about your book, wish you lots of luck and plenty of sales. I will order one myself. It has been very quiet on this forum for some time, keep looking to see whether anyone has made comments, but alas none. Perhaps everyone feels like I do, numbed by our loss of Deric. I still haven't been able to get back into his books, I get all choked up, although I used at lot of his quirky comments in my daily life. Thinking of you all though, especially of Aileen and family. Big hugs all around, Susan

Hi all you cat lovers. My children's book, The Quarry Cats, is finally being published on the 10th of September and is on Amazon already.I wish I could have sent a copy to Deric, who not only inspired me to write, but to write about cats. Love to everyone. Jocelyn from Brighouse.

I communicate with an old school friend now living in Perth, Australia. She currently has bursitis in her shoulder, so is meant to be resting it. They have recently acquired a cat that very definitely chose them and now rules their home. I recommended that she reads Deric's books on Kindle while she's laid up. She had not heard his name, but today I've heard that she and her husband have had a wonderful week reading some of Deric's work, re-reading it, and recommending it to their Aussie friends. A BIG THANK YOU to Annie, Aileen and all Deric's family for making his work available to all as you have. Deric will live on in his writing still capturing people's hearts as they do so. I often think of you and pray for you. Love Diana, Southampton

I've just logged on after a long time away. I am devastated to hear the news we have all dreaded hearing. My thoughts are with Aileen and all the family. A wonderful person has been lost to us and will be sadly missed but often remembered. Remember the laughter... Sue xx
