reference to Bill Dowling's message where he mentions Eric Wright. I was with Eric when he died. We were on holiday in the Isle of Man with Ian Tomlinson and John Wainwright. We had been to a dance and when we returned to the hotel Eric took ill during the night. it transpired that it was a burst ulcer which poisoned his system and sadly he died there a few days later. it was a very traumatic time for us all and we were pall bearers at his funeral. we were all starting out on our first jobs after leaving school and I sometimes wonder how our lives would have turned out.

Hi Colin we were in the same class together at Stocktonwood school I remember you very well. What happened to Eric was so very sad. I remember him in the same class and he was always turned out well and a very quiet lad. Loved his football and I think he played for the school at one time and another. Quite by accident I came across his grave at AllSaints Church. I was visiting a family grave and happen to walk past his grave site. For the longest time I wondered if it was the same Eric Wright I attended school with. Sad to hear that it was.
