Furnell, Jim I used to live near Jim in Clitheroe if he saw me coming up the road he always waited for me and we would walk into Clitheroe town together. Such a nice man . I worked with his mother and I would walk home from work with her she would tell me where Jim was playing each week and laugh about how dirty his football gear was to wash. I remember his father well. Take Care Jim
