  5. Heartfelt sympathy to Rory’s immediate family and his brothers. I was a friend of Rory’s Mum, Audrey, and met him through her. He was an excellent cook, and he took great care of Audrey’s pets and her garden after her sudden passing.. So sad for Rory to leave this life so young. Mother and Son reunited. Rest in Peace, Rory.
