HELLO MUM

My younger daughter Annette and her fiance Clint did something great for me today. They went to Hambleden, near Henley-on-Thames and put some flowers on my mum’s grave. I know I won’t ever be able to get there again myself, the way the cemetery is situated makes it impossible for me to get in there. Clint also went backwards and forwards to the tap and cleaned the Headstone off as it was a bit grubby with bird muck etc. Big thank you for that Clint.

They then went to the house mum used to live in and asked permission to take some photo’s the chap was very nice apparently and said she could. Thank you both so much for these, they are great, brought back loads of memories for me I can tell you.
