You will take solace and comfort from the many fine people on here. I certainly did last year.
All the very best from me and my family to you and yours. Take pride from watching his beloved Potters mate. He will be watching from above with my old man and thousands of other Stokies.
Matchdays are never the same - will be doing my usual "pre-season ritual" next Saturday mind, (bunch of red and white carnations on my parents' grave in Biddulph - then off to the match with the next generation accompanying me). But following the Potters is a source of continuity and comfort (mostly!).
RIP Howard I was there Wednesday at the funeral what a great send off this great man had ,Howard was a fantastic bloke always smiling and having a laugh,we had many discussions about our beloved Stoke at the bar in the waggon and horses True Gentleman

Just a quick one. Had a call from my best mate who came to Dads funeral and is a massive Stokie. Been to put flowers on Dads final resting place and noticed that my old man is buried very close to John Richie. This actually made me smile for the first time today. Happy Birthday Dad!
