    Sharing the joke, the journalist wrote: ‘A man and his wife are out walking one day when they spot a lone fellow on the other side of the road. ‘That looks like the Archbishop of Canterbury over there,’ says the woman.

    ‘Go and see if it is,’ 她补充说.

    ‘The husband crosses the road and asks the man if he is indeed the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    ‘F**k off,’ says the man.

    The husband crosses back to his wife who asks ‘What did he say? Is he the Archbishop of Canterbury?’

    ‘He told me to f**k off,’ says the husband.

    '不好了,’ replies the wife, ‘Now we’ll never know’.

    The family want to place on record our thanks to the doctors, nurses and consultants on Crick and Gaskill Wards for the compassion, 奉献, skill and respect they showed to him at Northwick Park. We’d also like to acknowledge the care taken by Dr Denton and Liam and Nisan at MacMillan for their comforting words and guidance. It’ll be no surprise to those who knew and worked with him that he was telling an Archbishop of Canterbury joke to a nurse not long before he died. That was one of his gifts, making strangers feel welcome, 逗他们笑.

    He leaves behind him a life of fun, 喜悦, love and silliness, and we’ll be doing the best to maintain that legacy.
