Letter from Jonathan Reypert: "Good memories"
I knew the
Booth family in the 1970's when they lived at Lower Brook End in
Buckinghamshire, I was friends with Jason and remember some of the things
that Matthew used to get us involved in, like riding his Honda C50, which
he'd bought for £8, at speeds that would probably have killed us if we'd
crashed, around their large garden. I also remember their dog, Brutus,
biting the arse of Matthews friend, Chris Benford.
I can only
remember meeting James once, he seemed sad that he'd had to tell one of his
sons off for something. His voice was just as it is in the films.
I lost touch
with the Booths when they went to the States, I would very much appreciate
it though, if you would pass on my condolences for their loss. I would be
interested to know what Matthew and Jason are all doing now, and of course
Charlotte, my sister Melanie's friend.
Many a time I
used to tell my parents that my watch had stopped so that I could stay to
play at their house longer, good memories.
