Dear Ginny and Ernie, Thank you so much for being in touch again. I do hope you will be able to come and see me sometime, Barbara

Barbara, such sad news, we have followed your monthly bulletin since our return after having stayed with you both in September last. Tony was one in a million, seemed to have time for everyone, our thoughts are with you and the family at this time.

Thank you, Mike and Carole. I have our middle son, Peter, and his wife with me tonight, plus two delightful granddaughters, so I will show them your message in the morning. It's been two days since I turned the computer on, so I'm sorry for the delay in replying. If you have a photo of yourselves, please email it to me so that I can feel I am talking to you direct. In between the endless phone calls I needed to make, I have been supervising the potting up daffodils and tulips ready for the spring. One of the last conversations that Tony and I had was about how much he loved the garden that I had made, and last weekend he asked for a piece of paper on which he tried to sketch a path that we were planning for the wild garden. Please keep in touch, Barbara
