MICHAEL RILEY  Sadly, Michael passed away on the morning of Sunday 24th January 2016. His daughter has let us know that it was a peaceful ending. Having suffered greatly for some time, those who saw him would notice a rapid decline latterly although this he bore uncomplainingly and with dignity. His wife and daughter wish to thank all the members of Stainbeck Arts Club for their support and good wishes sent during his illness and let you know how much that support has been appreciated. Funeral arrangements are yet to be advised and I shall pass these on when known, to any members who may wish to pay their respects. I am sure you will wish Jean, Jane and family, condolences in their loss.  Michael Cox 26th January 2016 Dear All,  Thank you so much for your kind words, it meant a lot to us. We have arranged his funeral as follows: 11am on Tuesday 9th February, Lawnswood Crematorium, and after that back at our house, 6a Whinfield for sandwiches and cake. You are all most welcome. For catering purposes, could you please let me know by Thursday 4th if you are able to come? We are planning to order a large floral tribute from all his family and friends - and to invite anyone who would like to, to send a donation in his memory to Wheatfields Hospice.  If any of you have any comments or anecdotes you would like shared, would you please let me have them in the next couple of days as we are keen to include them in the service.  Best wishes Jane
