    Ewart needham and I knew Vince very well when we were all at Teddington Studios. He was a real pro, always made you laugh and we were saddened to hear of his death. Our condolenses go to his family.

    My condolenses go to Geraldine, Vinces wife and his three children. He was very close to me when married to my mother Pat.I met Geraldine on one of my trips back to the UK, she is a great lady. I am saddened by her loss.
