I'm taking the liberty of cross posting the FB posting here. It is expressly "to all Frank's Facebook friends" and I see no reason why this shouldnt include his Naim friends too who are not on Facebook, especially as she says "we agreed.... I would let everyone know".
I dont know what is the best email address for non-Facebookers to use to contact the family, maybe Naim HQ can advise?
"To all of Frank's Facebook friends.... this is Jude, Frank's wife, writing on his behalf.
This is a difficult post to write and I know that for many of you it will come out of the blue and be difficult to read, but I need to let you know that Frank is very ill. He collapsed suddenly in January and scans showed that he had a brain tumour. Unfortunately its the most aggressive type, glioblastoma multiforme, and we were told from the start that it was terminal.
We decided that we would not let it stop us and wanted to keep thing's as normal as possible, so you will have seen typical Frank photos and posts.
Despite brain surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy Frank kept going, luckily avoiding the worst side effects of treatment. He did get very tired and had problems managing everyday tasks but up until September continued to enjoy life as much as possible. At the beginning of September, Frank had a very bad set of seizures and was in hospital for over 5 weeks.
We managed to bring him home briefly last month but he deteriorated at the weekend and was readmitted. I know that this will come as a shock to many of you but Frank wanted to carry on as normally as possible which is why he decided not to tell everyone at the beginning.
We agreed that when his condition reached a certain point, I would let everyone know; we reached that point yesterday when he was moved to the palliative care ward. At the moment he is comfortable, sleeping most of the time and not in any pain. When he is awake, he is able to talk a little and recognises everyone and for that I am very grateful.
If you would like to send him a message please reply to this post or PM me; I'll read them out to him and I will let you know when his condition changes. Thanks to all our wonderful family and friends who have supported us both through this nightmare. He still has that glint in his eye at times and his lovely smile and he is and always will be the love of my life xxx"
