    That's horrible news.

    My thoughts are with Andy and the rest of the family.

    I went passed the floodgate yesterday and it's still closed.

    I can't imagine what the family are going through. Life can be so cruel.

    Was Andy or Joe working last night? I will be in tonight. I've got no idea what I'm going to say to them both. I'm terrible with knowing the right words to say. It's just sh*t.

    There is no right thing to say. Nothing you can say can make things any better. Just being there, being yourself and behaving normally is the best you can do.

    I went to floodgate on Friday night. The pub was very busy and the quality of beer was superb as usual.

    I did pass on my very best wishes to Andy and the family via the two lovely bar staff working.

    I'm going to try and finish early on Friday, so I can drop by the wake.
