Thread Name: Obit: Neville Nicholson (Nov 2013)
Subject: RE: Neville Nicholson
At long last managed to get to see Nev. He has lost some weight and a little hair but the beard is still in tact and as the weather is good he looks quite brown! He met us at the gate with the aid of a walking stick (wheel chair and zimmer in garage at the moment but don't tell the O.T. Dept. they might want them back!) His last blood test at the hospital was okay not good but not bad but that has cheered him up and given him a bit more fight. We left a book on Learn to Play the ukelele which although he might not use gives him something else to think about. We did comment on what's wrong singing unaccompanied and we did have several snatches of songs from him during the time we were there. He thanks everyone for all their best wishes but says he cannot write to all - even if he had addresses. Diane is embarrassed by the spoons he appropriated from the hospital but Nev says his collection is not complete as he does not have any silver spoons in B flat minor!!! Watch this space folks.
