Warwick’s funeral will be held on Monday August 9th at 11.00 am, at Stourbridge Crematorium, South Road, Stourbridge, West Midlands, DY8 3RQ.
Due to the Covid situation the Funeral Director needs a list of all those attending, but we understand that people not on the list who do turn up will be allowed to attend. If you are hoping to attend, please contact the Worcestershire ME Social Group by email or phone so we can pass on your name, address and telephone number, please.
Many of Warwick’s friends will have heard him talk about ME/CFS Research, and that he wanted his body to be used for research into ME/CFS. You will be pleased to hear that his wishes have been carried out. Our Group heard from Dr Charles Shepherd, the ME Association’s Hon. Medical Adviser, who was in contact with Sue Wildblood, one of Warwick’s cousins.
Earlier this year Warwick talked about his wish to see his sister Carol and her family in Australia to celebrate his 75th birthday, but with the COVID situation sadly that couldn’t happen.
Flowers, or donations to Macmillan Cancer Support, can be sent to the funeral directors, Vernon Kendrick, Greenfield House, 11 Greenfield Avenue, Stourbridge, West Midlands, DY8 1ST.
Last year, Warwick wrote to the ME Association (MEA), giving details of his involvement with a ‘Case study for long term illness’ at his local surgery. The letter was published on page 55, of the Winter 2020 edition of the MEA’s ‘ME Essential’ magazine, and is included below following the kind permission received from Caroline Cavey, the ME Essential Editor.
