    All, I have updated the fundraising page with further information. If you want to have a look, link is (as before): https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/reacher

    Thanks again on behalf of Reacher's family to everyone who has contributed.

    So sorry to hear that Reacher, my condolences to you and your family :(

    I had to decide to let my mum pass away in hospital last Wednesday and that was tough enough, I just can't imagine what you must be going through fella. Stay strong, try to remember the happy times and laugh and make sure you look after yourself to at this difficult time.

    @kentmonkey how would you feel about the EG Twitter account pointing to the fundraising page?

    Reacher, I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss.

    @Bertie I'd be over the moon mate. This is all about showing our support for a fellow EGer and helping the charity that helped his family out, so anything you, or anyone, can do to help achieve that, and show support, would get my seal of approval.

    Appreciate you asking though.

    So very sorry to hear of your loss, Reacher. All my thoughts are with you and yours.

    Kentmonkey, how long will the fundraising page be up? I would like to contribute but am pretty skint for the next couple of weeks.

    I'm not bringing the fundraising page down anytime soon.

    I'd say at least a couple of months, but essentially I'll take direction from Reacher on that one. When he feels like it's time to bring it down, I will, otherwise it'll stay up there. So no rush at all.

    I'm just the monkey who created a page, I'll leave it up to the family to decide when it's right to pull it down.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll donate in a couple of weeks then.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2018 15:27:08
    Echo all above. I have no words. Much love.

    @Reacher

    Thanks mate, we are doing OK now TBH. My wife and daughter are coming to terms with it and I processed my grief with a whole bottle of Jack Daniels on the Wednesday night :)

    Her health had been bad for a few years though so while a sad time it's also something that I've been bracing for even though she was only 64. There is some comfort in knowing she really is in a better place now.

    BTW Mrs bad09 also sends her condolences to you and your family, she's been following the thread to through me and will be thinking of Matthew today. :(

    Send my thanks to Mrs bad09.

    I fully intend to get absolutely hammered this evening once the kids (I have two others) have gone to their nans.

    My youngest doesn't really understand it (he's 4), but he knows something is up. He's missing his mum more than anything as she's been away since Boxing Day with Matthew. My eldest, Will, is 10. He's having a rough time and was creeped out by having to see his brothers dead body this afternoon, I shouldn't have let him go in to be honest, but I'd rather he did and deal with it, than not let him and regret it.

    Tough times at Casa El Reacho.

    Lost for words and can't imagine how you're feeling. Hug those kid's a little harder and stay strong. Everyone's here for you if you want to talk.
