A MESSAGE FROM ALISON & PHILIP
Ali Bongo's life long passion was magic! Anyone close to him
would be aware that he breathed, ate and slept magic, sometimes seeming to live
on his own magic planet. Ali spent his life doing what he loved, performing
magic and bringing pleasure to his audiences. He loved spending time with fellow
magicians and considered himself privileged to belong to a worldwide magic
However, although many people were unaware of it, Ali was also very close to his
other family, his relations to whom he remained William (known as Billy) and we
as a family have many fond memories of him. I hope some of them will also
contribute to this site.
To us, his niece and nephew he was simply "Uncle
Billy" a much loved uncle, and we also benefited greatly from his magic
talents, as children it was certainly something to boast about to our school
We are very glad to have this space here to be able to hear from all of you.
We would also like to thank you for your support and kindness both during Ali's
illness and over the last few days.
We look forward to reading thoughts and feelings about Ali as well as any
stories or great times you remember.
Alison and Philip
