Perry recently received this touching email from David Jason.
It’s in addition to the huge amount of comments we have already seen from the fans on this site.
Certainly it reveals how deeply John Sullivan touch the great actors he worked with. For anyone who missed the recent BBC tribute to John Sullivan it was very obvious what a genuis writer John Sullivan was and is quite rightly regarded.
Here is the email in full from David Jason:
A TRIBUTE TO JOHN SULLIVAN BY SIR DAVID JASON
I heard about John’s death whilst on holiday in Florida and so driving back through Miami brought back all the memories of Miami Twice and the fun we’d had over there. Then to get back to the UK and see so many wonderful tributes in the press, brought it home again to me what a great friend I had lost. Being at his funeral was like being in the wrong scene in the wrong script – it shouldn’t have been happening. What a sad, sad day for his family, his friends, the entire cast and crew of Only Fools, not to mention the other shows he had so skilfully crafted.
Thanks for all the laughs John.
You really made a difference to our lives.
Sir David Jason
The funeral took place last Thursday for the Sullivan family along with very close friends
Perry attended and informed me it was a very private affair really and very moving – He managed to spend about 10 mins with David Jason – we was on top form – all the cast were there.
It wasn’t appropriate to ask if anything else was written on Rock & Chips, but of course this is a question many fans will have on there minds in the months ahead.
