Hi Grace,yes poor Pat passed away at a early age in her 40's,she left 4 girls and a boy,Jeanie Dyer passed away this year and my sister Kitty died last year,Just Tommy and I left now the last of nine,he is real good he calls me twice a week from the U.S to see how I am doing.Still living on the Northolt racecourse estate 56 years in the same flat,I did buy it when we had the chance ,the trouble is it is upstairs and it is hard to go up and down anymore.Yes we did have a cousin who was evacuated to Wales with us she moved to Australia years ago have lost touch.I am 81 now tough to get old with all the ackes and pains.
