John, 73. After a short illness and a long disease my beloved man has now returned to sender. We'll never forget you. Many of you may remember him coming to screenings with me, proudly sitting in his "favourite" seat.

very sad to hear another person exists in only memory now. But great memories I am sure.

I had in mind also a young student at my old med school who died recently after barely starting work, makes me appreciate life all the more.

So, so sorry to hear this. It has been a pleasure knowing John, he is a lovely and beautiful man. We had some great and fun times together, Beate, and will treasure those memories with you. We shall all miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you. At least he is now at peace and in heaven.

As per Robert Montgomery:

"THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE
BECOME GHOSTS INSIDE
OF YOU AND LIKE THIS
YOU KEEP THEM ALIVE"
Preferred cinemas:
Central London and North London as far north as the Hampstead Everyman including Picturehouse Hackney/Notting Hill Gate - but not Wood Green and North Finchley as they are just a bit too far.
