In loving memory to Derrick, Richard's uncle who died yesterday in England. May he rest in peace.
Derrick loved cars and he had a special place in his heart for the Lanchester . It is a British car that you might not have heard about. Did you see the movie "The King's Speech"? Apparently, great care was taken in the filming so as to be true to the real story but they used the Rolls Royce for King George when in reality, he really used Lanchesters as his personal vehicles!
I will miss Derrick's great booming laugh and the way that he called everything "lovely". I might not have agreed with some of his viewpoints but he was so doggone charming and funny, I didn't care...I could forgive him anything!
Here's to you, Derrick. YOU are lovely. I will remember you always. xx Cheers!
