Thank you for your smile

Goodbye our sunny, lovely friend. Some people are sent into our lives to remind us to smile, give our love freely and take pleasure in the simple things. Thank you for the joy and the sunshine you brought us, we will miss your beautiful face

Hey kids

In 1983 I watched the Young Ones on TV with a group of friends and when one of our mates said, “This isn’t funny,” I looked at her like she was an alien with two heads. In my world of uptight rules and private school uniforms watching Rik and Vyv helped me find my tribe. Mr Mayall you were too young to go, you will be so missed, thank you for providing the laughs and the anarchy and your glorious comic stupidity to my youth. You were a brilliant comedian and writer and an inspiration to me. Hope you and Mel Smith are laughing like drains in the afterlife.

We haven’t told our parents what time we’ll be back
