Sad news

Post by AMCQ46 »

For the 2nd time in 2 years I am sharing my grief with you guys on here, as you are my second family.

Last time it was my mum, and a few of you had met her when I diverted the Scotland run to include a coffe stop at her home.

Today I have lost my little brother Norman (norryRC8 on this forum).
He was out on his ktm and it looks like he lost control as no other vehicles were involved, but he died from his injuries soon after arriving at the hospital in Ayr.

At the moment I am up in Scotland with his wife and we are all numb.

There are no words that I can think of that can tell you how sorry I feel for you.
He was a great guy and a pleasure to be around, he will be missed by the lads on this forum, bit missed a lot more by you and your family.
So sorry to hear this awful news.
RIP Norman

Sad news indeed.

As said no words from any of us can justify how deeply affected you & your family must be feeling.

All I can add to whats been said already is... Remember the good times you shared with Norman, anything no matter how small that will bring a smile to your face...

RIP Norman.

What awful news! Nothing I can say really. Shocked and very very sad. A good mucker, what a loss.

Thinking of you Al.

My deepest sympathies to you and all the family
