Sad, but not really unexpected. What a pity he didn't make 100.

I wonder what happens now re a funeral - there can't be a large state one at the moment can there?

So sad he didn't get to 100 to have a card from his wife.

RIP Sir

I'd heard by 'phone and switched on the BBC.

I'm so sorry he didn't reach His 100th and PM is giving a Statement at Downing Street, live.

Very sad news indeed, but at least he got to spend his last days at home with the Queen after his long stay in hospital.
