TONY SHERIDAN UPDATE: Tony Sheridan continues to improve after his illness. Friend Ted “Kingsize” Taylor posted on Facebook Monday “I visited Tony this morning, and as promised, sat and read him some of your kind greetings, and get well messages, as promised. Tony is, as you may well imagine, still very weak, but was delighted that so many people care, and sends his thanks to you all. He asked me to give him a push, I said, 'A push? Where to?' 'Outside for a smoke' replied Tony, with a smile on his face, so he hasn't lost his dry sense of humor.”
