LETTERS: Roy would have been proud

John Burston has sent us an email to extend his warm gratitude those who attended his brother Roy’s funeral yesterday. The letter reads:

Please may I use the pages of 33/18 to say a heartfelt thank you for all the cycle speedway fraternity who turned up at Blackley Crematorium yesterday for the funeral of my Brother Roy Burston, it was heartwarming and very much appreciated by all his family that so many turned out on a bitterly cold day to pay their respects.

May I also thank all those who could not make it on the day but sent their condolences and best wishes we were all very touched by your support.

Thank you all on behalf of Roy’s family he would have been proud.

John Burston

We’re glad to hear the day went okay John, and that Roy’s funeral was well attended, especially by the Cycle Speedway family.
