Dad, I appreciate all that you have taught me, especially the Latin which comes in really useful!! Thank you for introducing me to Mozart and Beethoven, J R.R. Tolkein, and so many other great authors. I'm sorry I could never be the great gardener that you were. Picking (and eating) peas fresh from your garden is a special memory. I know you worked so hard when we were young at your 3 jobs, I enjoyed helping you with the gestetner machine. Good times in the car learning times tables. I'm sorry you did not get to meet young Nina Beverly, she is a keen learner and loves books. Mum is being taken very good care of until you get to see her again, love, Bev xx
