I would like to say a few words about a great friend who lived in Alvechurch for many years.
I knew Tony Keating through my sister, who knew his wife a number of years ago. We lost touch and then regained our friendship a couple of years later. I found out that he had developed a crippling illness and we were in touch often by text and phone calls, but due to work commitments I was unable to get to visit.
I found out recently from the sheltered accommodation he’d had to go into that he had sadly passed away.
I will miss my our chats together, my friend, until we hopefully meet again. Much love.
