Not a Holte Ender by any means, in fact he pretty much hated football, although he did once travel on the Darlaston Town team bus to an FA Cup match at Hereford.

But he was my best mate and I loved him.

Very sorry to hear that news Dave. Having lost my Dad too (a non-Villan also), I know how it feels.

He's now an HolteEnder in the Sky by association. That's good enough for me.

Condolences to you and your family.

Dave, as I posted elsewhere, I am so sorry to hear your very sad news.

It's hard, oh so hard, but things DO get easier, never completely normal, but easier.

I don't know what you're going through but I can imagine it must really hurt. If the internet had an arm I'd put it around you.

I had the privilege of knowing Dave's dad. He was a good man; you only have to meet his son to realise that.
