Bishop William, Rector of Gawsworth St James
“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I pass this news on to you all.
Last night (28th Nov) at 11.30pm Tim Richards our Patron, friend and parishioner died at home after a long battle with cancer.
We are deeply saddened by the news of Tim passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Elizabeth, Rupert and Jonathan at this very sad time.
When a person departs from this earth they never truly leave, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on.
Over the years Tim has done a great deal for the Church, assisting us in our fund raising during the Bank Holidays and at Christmas by sending his many visitors to the Church.
No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that Tim is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Our deepest condolences go to Elizabeth and the family.
May God bless and keep you.
Bishop William, Church Warden and Parishioners of Gawsworth St James Church.”
