Passing of a friend

I was enjoying my holiday in Bright with the family on the last day of 2010, when a text turned up on my phone. A colleague and friend had passed away. I had to ring Peter to find out more. It was a real downer and had a big impact on me. I started a thread on Podiatry Arena on Graham Curryer and went for a beer in his honour. He and I have shared many a beer, as recently as September in Toronto. What a way to end the year. The tributes posted on Podiatry Arena by others says a lot.
