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

Hi everyone, I've just logged on here , first time in ages, and found the news I've been dreading.My heart goes out to Aileen, Annie and all the Longden family. Your loss is so much greater than ours but I like to think that, through Deric's wonderful writing, we are all 'family'. I hope you don't mind. Only last week I recommended one of Deric's books to a customer (I work in a library)which she loved and has gone on to read the rest.So Deric lives on in the heart of another fan. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. Kay. xx

Diana, have just found what you wrote (translated of course). Beautifully written. Deric wasn't a vain man and I do believe that he really never knew just what an impact he made on all our lives. Even if you are not a cat person, you cannot fail to love his books. They aren't only cat stories, they are stories of people and life, of a wonderful way to look upon life with all it throws at us. I will always hold Deric fondly in my memories. Sadly , it hurts to wonder how he family is going to cope not having him personally there. He may have left many wonderful memories, but sadly also a great big hole that can never be filled. My thoughts go out to them, always.

Gracie, Diana! Isn't it a wonderful thing how Deric has us all connected, no matter which country we are from? Love to all - and especially to Aileen and Annie, keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Love from Germany, Conny

Love and prayers to Deric's family from me and my magnificent 7 (moggies). What a wonderful gift that man had for making people laugh and to unite us in our love of animals.

I am the editorial director of Paco Editore. In Italy we published two beautiful books of Deric Longden: The Cat Who Came in from the Cold and Enough to Make a Cat Laugh, who liked them so much to the readers.
I'm so sorry for his death.
On my site I wrote a reminder of Deric.
