I do apologise if this message seems rather formal but I am struggling to keep myself together at the moment.
Thank you Ray, this is sensible and much appreciated in this difficult time.

Its numbed my afternoon quite considerably, I'm sure those closer to him are feeling it much more, so again, thanks.

Thank you Ian for making this a sticky.
To try and save any concerns, rest assured that Joe is making arrangements to ensure the safe keeping of Mark's car and his large collection of spares. I am assisting Joe in this.
