His last request was a nice hot cup of tea. Apparently he was spitting feathers. I heard someone saying " They saw him a few days ago " He was then past his sell by date.

Sorry for the jokes if they have offended anyone.

Just in time for Christmas? It's what he would have wanted.

Apparently James Blunt will be playing at the funeral but I've no idea what song he's doing...

Ian I assume you are talking about his first and most famous chart track

Pity he wasn't around a few years ago when Ernie Wise passed away

He could have sung another of his well known tracks for his funeral

Actually this gives me an idea
I might start a new thread to do with Twisted Lyrics Very Happy
