Sincere condolences to Glenn and his family, especially his loveable Mom.

Glenn has always talked so highly and lovingly about his parents, it made me smile and warmed my heart.

Your Dad is in a good place now, Glenn. He will always watch over you.
I wish you strength in this difficult time.

...a brief interview with Sheila Hughes, Glenn's mother and wife of William "Bill" Hughes.

Quote:
He was in a care home suffering with dementia, it had been a long, long haul. Glenn had been expecting it.

Sheila said her husband had always wanted to see Glenn perform whenever he got the opportunity.

Quote:
Bill loved music from the word go. He couldn’t play but he could sing. He loved music that’s all I can say. He was always wanting to go to see Glenn whenever he was near to us. We saw him together many, many times. I went to see him when he was last in Dudley in November.

This piece was in the local paper.

I will be escorting Annette Galley to the funeral so feel as though i will represent all fans on this site in paying their respects to Bill.

A lovely service today and a great eulogy from Glenn.

It was just family and friends and thankfully there were no "fans" there just to see Glenn.

Not much else to say really. RIP Bill Hughes.
