I don't know how many of my friends from this board still check in here, but with Christmas only two days away, I thought I'd wish you and Deric's family a very Merry Christmas, and a happy and healthy New Year. I'm sending a hug up to you in Heaven dear Mr. Longden, and hope you'll give some kisses from me to Thermal, Arthur, and all the other kitties up there. Love, Jan

I am currently recording all of Dereks books on to a small recorder for a 79 year old lady friend who has been blind for 20 years and was devastated this week while checking on line to see if I actually had all of them, to come across the news of his death. I have read and reread all of his books again and again, and passed them around to all my friends.
The man was a true genius!!My condolences to all his family [ I feel as if i know you all]

Sorry to hear that Deric had died - I was sad to read that he had cancer but was not aware that he had died in June - I met him many years ago when he gave a talk at The Grosvenor Museum in Chester -he was a lovely man and will be sorely missed I am sure - my heart goes out to the family...

I was devastated to hear of Deric's passing. My heart goes out to his family. I do hope this forum will continue in Deric's memory. At least he will live on in his books and for all of us who enjoys reading and re-reading them. God bless Deric, sleep well,love Karen xxxx

Just looked in on the board after quite a long time. I'm absolutely shattered to read the sad news of the loss of Deric. I had spoken on the phone with him some considerable time ago and can't count the times I've read his wonderful books. A wonderful man who will be so sadly missed by many. My sincere condolences to Aileen and the family. God Bless.
