RIP MAURICE (sospiri)


Staff member
as some of you know maurice had been ill for some time..he came home from hospital a few days ago but had to be admitted again 2 days ago...it is with a very heavy heart i have to inform all of you that maurice passed away this morning...maurice was not just a friend to us all but he was always willing to help others especially with their family ancestry and had been a bhf member for many years... maurice (an aston lad) was unable to read our messages of support on another thread but his wife jan was able to relay them to him so he knew we were all thinking of him....star in the sky.jpg

my condolences to his wife jan and all of the family

rest in peace maurice we are all going to miss you and tonight another brummie star will light up the sky

Never met anyone on BHF but it feels like I've lost family. Loss of friends is all too common these days and R.I.P. is becoming routine. Regardless...RIP Maurice, gonna miss your wisdom.
