“ I have known your mother for a number of years and met her on several occasions. Even when she had moved into Ryelands she asked me to continue writing to her and keeping her updated on what was happening throughout MHA. She would also ring me once she had received a letter and go through it in great detail so I always prepared for her call a few days after I knew it would have arrived.
I remember the day she rang me to tell me that she had moved into Ryelands. She was so pleased to have been able to do so after having had so much contact with the home over the years. She was so happy there.”
“ Mum spoke of you very warmly on many occasions and she took great interest in your letters. It was so funny to read your comments about her phoning you after your letters arrived to go through things in detail. That was just typical of the way she worked with things that were important to her. My sister and I miss her a lot. As well as mum, she was a best buddy.”
