Pete’s mum, Pat, died a few days ago.

When Pete and I got engaged, she said to me ‘Well, you’d better call me Pat now’ and I said “Okay, Mrs F….. I mean, okay, Pat’. Her name was actually Mary Patricia.

I have been wondering how to put a post up about her, mainly because there is so much I would like to say about her life and so little I feel entitled to say. After all, her story really belongs to her children now.

The photo above is from our old album. It is a good way to remember her.
