I had an email the other day from Viv, she is Betty’s daughter. If you remember, Betty, my long time friend died last year. I now have to say that Bill, her wonderful husband has died.
It has come as a bit of a shock really, bless him, such a true Gentleman as Betty was a true Lady. The perfect couple I would say. You could not help but smile with them as they talked or over talked each other and corrected things the other had said, never nasty, always with fun. A joy to be with, Bill loved to reminisce about his days in the Royal Navy, absolutely fascinating to listen to, he should really have written a book of his memoirs. I remember when Annette and I had gone to see Betty one day about some of her fabrics, he was sent out to buy cakes for us on his way back from a Doctors appointment. Done as a surprise for us, he then came home and made us a wonderful cup of tea and presented us with the cakes. Thank you Bill I have wonderful memories of you and Betty over the years I have known you both.
My heart goes out to the family for their sad loss once again.
