Another Hammer gone
Lost my grandad on Saturday night due to that cunting disease dementia.
He was a massive west ham supporter and back in the 60's, 70's and 80's He used to drink with the players especially Bobby Moore and knew most of the players such as Bonds, Devonshire and Brooking.
The world has lost a great man and due to dementia all his stories and memories went long before he did.
Such a fucking horrible disease and wouldn't wish that in anyone. We will be giving him a huge send off and he will be going into the furnace to bubbles.
Rest in peace Ronald Frederick Worboyes 28.08.1934

Condolences Steve and may your Grandad RIP. My Grandad finally succumbed to Dementia after 10 years, served in the RAF during BOB, didn't know his own wife in the end, worst thing that can happen to anyone. Was a Charlton supporter and his best mate was Millwall, favourite player was Harry Cripps, both tried to get me over there clubs, but my brother and I were having none of it, used to get Grandad (his Millwall mate didn't fancy it though LOL) over West Ham and he loved going.

Re: Another Hammer gone
Thank you everyone for the condolences and kind words. As some have said on here, those born in the 30's and 40's are a different breed. If it wasn't for the dementia he would have carried on well into his 90's.
I hope all of those who are seeing their loved ones suffer with this horrible disease get to see their beloved live as long as possible and I really do have so much sympathy for them.
Up the hammers

Anyone born in the 1930's who is still with us deserves huge respect - they have seen a completely different world.

RIP your grandad.

Re: Another Hammer gone
Condolences. Your post is further proof that West Ham and it’s community is something beyond most football clubs.

As dementia in the family impacts more and more of us understanding the strains and conflicts that are created is important. There are no easy answers. When my father in law passed a couple of years ago he had been very sick for many years. It was the onset of dementia in the final year that was most difficult for the family to grasp.

‘What they had’ is by no means a perfect movie but it’s worth a watch just to engage in the idea of how you and your family might manage a situation in the future.

Re: Another Hammer gone
My utmost condolences to everybody.

We went back to check on my mom last year for an extended period. At the end of a long day working on her house with her, a few times she would just say something off hand to me as if I was my deceased father. "Wasn't your mom's [my grandma's] house that colour?" or things like that.

Scary and disturbing

It did not happen for a while before we left (we were considering not coming back) and she has younger siblings in the same little town as here but still bothers me a bit.

To connect to another thread, thanks to the slightly more private part of Facebook, I can check in with her. easily. See what she looks like.

RIP mate. My mum has not long been in a care home due to vascular dementia. She has decent mornings but deteriorates as the day goes on and I am now three people to her - I'm my late dad, me at 7 years old and me at 51 what I am now. Dreadful disease.

Sure this resonates with all on here, that generation from that side of London were a breed apart
