We received the very sad news that dear friend and long time supporter of the Simon Community Bernard Huggins died recently. Despite being quite unwell Bernard attended the Simon Community reunion party on 12th October and told me that he greatly appreciated catching up with old friends. Sadly Bernard subsequently suffered two strokes and was in a coma when I went to visit him in hospital in Brighton on 6th November. He died the next day – the evening of 7th November. Many members of the Community will have fond memories of Bernard and anyone who would like to go to the funeral will be welcome. We will be sending a wreath from the Simon Community and I shall be attending.
The funeral will take place in Brighton on Friday 6th December. We do not have full details yet but will be in touch when we do.
