Veronica ‘Ronni’ Money (80 years young)

With a wounded heart it falls to me to thank all who have sent their kind thoughts for the
loss of one of the human race’s most beautiful souls so she can rejoin her fellow angels .

Ever lively, amusing, curious of everything and everybody, helpful, loving, ever witty,
cheeky, my little warrior woman Ronni passed through my and many other’s lives bestowing
advice, help and always with absolute frightening honesty.

Although hundreds had a truly valuable meeting or relationship with her either as Vera McCann,  Vonnie, Veronica, Veron or even ‘Scots Ronni’, I was the luckiest of all and got to be her soul mate for an unbelievable life commitment of over 50 years.

Although now alone, I not only have two sons, a daughter, two grandkids, a great grandchild and a further expected great grandchild to remind me of her positive attitude and beliefs…..
and that doesn’t include the thousands of moments and events she was involved in or
indeed instigated, that shall help spur me on with laughter and love in the future.

If you ever met her, consider yourself lucky and blessed but if you didn’t and  want to show
respect…. then help someone else and their family who have been affected by this vile unforgiving disease  via.    <veronicaronni.money.muchloved.com>

Thank you again.

Details of service will be posted on Facebook when fixed.

The Manfreds, Zoot Money and PP Arnold at Lighthouse, Poole

He will join the Manfreds whose line-up of original members includes Paul Jones, Mike D’Abo, Tom McGuinness and Mike Hugg as well as Rob Townsend, Marcus Cliffe and Simon Currie.

The concert will also feature PP Arnold who was an original Ikette with the Ike and Tina Turner Experience before being noticed by Mick Jagger and catapulted to stardom with her version of Cat Stevens’ song The First Cut is the Deepest.”

Excuse me while I kiss this guy…

This is the first guitar Jimi Hendrix played when he arrived in the UK.
Zoot Money tells Steve Owers (Danze Macabre) the tale, and shows off the extraordinary guitar. A little bit of rock history right there.
