Just noticed. Coincedentally, I was just reading the tributes thread of his last night, after I heard Amy Winehouse died. I didn't realise it was almost a year to the day.
You're still missed Alex. I was in the pub when I heard you'd died. I think you'd want it that way.
it was a year to the day but not the date Alex Higgins died on the saturday
eh how could it be a year to the DAY today (a Sunday) if Higgins died on a Saturday, its the year to the the date, or to keep things simple, exactly a year ago.
though i suspect Alex died 2 or 3 days before then in his flat as he hadnt been seen or heard from. Begs the question where were his care workers, friends or sisters checking up on him.
In a strange way it seems far longer than a year ago i must admit.
