Joe Rooney's Passing


Recommended Posts

Dear Members; I have just learned from Linda, Joe Rooney's wife, that dear Joe has passed away...in her words:

"I just wanted to let you know that Joe passed away yesterday morning at the hospital. The doctors thought that he had had a number of small strokes that helped to shut down his heart. Although it was not all that unexpected, it still was a terrible shock..."

Linda has specifically requested that I inform the Bedlington Forum members of his passing; I had planned to forward Linda the many greetings and wishes you have recently sent to Joe on this Forum in time for his birthday on Monday....

Please keep Joe and his family in your thoughts and send them the strength they'll need at this time. Thank you.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
