A toast of love and respect to our absent friends Bobby Austin and Barny Murray

Written by Ron Noon at 17:40 on Friday, January 06th 2012

First of all I am writing this under pressure of time as I have to visit my mother in law in Sunderland Hospital and writing in a public library just round the corner is my only acess to the TINTERNET!

Here is the email that we had from Rob Austin on New Years Day:

“My dad was Bobby Austin of your Film. Sadly he died on 31 December 2011.  His family feel blessed to have this accessible recording of his interview on sugar, taken as part of your research. We gratefully thank you for this.

Albert E Sloane phoned me up to tell me that Barny Murray one of our “regulars” from the Punch and Judy crowd had passed away and we had only been with him three weeks back.

I will provide pictures and more information about these two lovely men ASP but there is one reassuring thought that I gleaned from a card I picked up last week.

“To live in the hearts of those we love is not to die.” This site has a heart and soul and the lives of Bobby and Barney will always be celebrated with love and deepest respect.

RIP.
