Thanks MickEd's daughter writes:-"Ed passed late on his birthday last week. My sister and I are staying with Mum, while we sort out the necessaries, etc. It was a shock, as he was due some surgery soon and we were preparing ourselves for that, but one must be philosophical about these things; he went out exactly how he wanted to, after a night out at his club with his pals. So, I have details of the send off we are putting together, if you and the Secret Leeds clan would like to join us? It's on 04 March; let me know if you would like the particulars (the band are playing).

Ed O'Donnell's funeral arrangements from Jim Wright last night. It will be held on Tuesday, 4 March, starting at 10.15 with a Requiem Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes church on Cardigan Road. Cremation at 11.40 at Lawnswood Crematorium and "do" afterwards at Armley Conservative Club which is off Armley Ridge Road, LS12 3NU.
