It is said that a man dies twice, once in body and again when his name is spoken for the last time. It was obvious whilst attending a party to celebrate the life of Nigel Lofthouse yesterday that Nigel will take a long time to die. The memory of Nigel and his ability to squeeze life was in everybody’s thoughts and conversation. He enthusiastically embraced every project I worked with him on and I witnessed his ability to make all better. I can recall conversations in his studio at Yew Tree about bringing up boys that 
gave me direction – it will all be given and it will be ok.
