Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

I WOULD like to thank ev­ery­one that at­tended my brother James But­ler’s funeral.

For all the cards and kind words. My fam­ily took some com­fort in know­ing he had lots of friends that cared and will miss Jim. He was a good brother and a great fam­ily man and all ways fun to be with. He was a full time carer to his much love wife Pat, who sadly died al­most two years ago.

But I’m not just writ­ing this let­ter to talk about his funeral.

I want tell you what fi­nally took him away from us which was Prostate Can­cer, it’s one of the big­gest killers of men I’m told in this coun­try.

And maybe if he had the test sooner he would be here now. So I urge men out there, get your­self checked out Now.

You may save your­self and your fam­ily from pain and suf­fer­ing. My lovely brother fought long and hard to stay with us but can­cer won in the end.

Don’t let it hap­pen to You. Wynn Pilk­ing­ton via email
