Shortly after we went to press last month, we were informed of the death of Father Ronald Walls, the father of David and Christopher Walls. This was one person who could have said he lived life to the full. He was first of all a family man, married with 3 sons, and then, after the death of his wife, he took Holy Orders and became a catholic priest, based in the archdiocese of Aberdeen, serving in Caithness, Banchory, Woodside, Aberdeen, and latterly, Kirkwall. He had the immense personal pleasure of carrying out marriages and baptisms for the family, and the great care and understanding to carry out family funerals as well. Your editor knows of only one other person who falls into the category of lay, married and family man first, and Priest after. It is a very rare occurrence. We sent our deepest condolences to his family.

An article about Vince Margiotta appeared in a recent edition of the Sunday Post about his businesses in Liverpool, ands is reproduced in the web page under FPs in the News. Vince’s parents had great claims to fame. His father, Armando, was known as the Fudge King, and made fudge which he sold from his shop in the High Street. His greater claim to fame was that he was a contestant, and beat the panel, on the quiz programme, “What’s my Line”, and proudly displayed his certificate in the window of his shop. His mother, Phyllis, has a terrible memory when the clocks changed and was frequently seen entering events and buildings one hour late, having forgotten the change in the time due to Summer Time starting.
Ricky Demarco has done it again. He has advised us of an event that will finish before this edition is sent out. For your information, he held a 2010 fundraising party celebrating the Demarco Gallery’s new home at Craigcrook Castle Annexe, Craigcrook Road, Edinburgh EH4 3PE on the 30th and 31st January. Even Philip Contini is in on the act, as he is supplying the catering.The address is where you should be able to visit Ricky and some of his works throughout the year. Remember he is hoping to have some exhibition about Scotus and Holy Cross, during this year’s Festival, so we should be pleased if you would contact him with any ideas.
He is also launching a new book “The Demarco Collection and Archive: An Introduction”. It can be obtained directly from Ricky.
