  13. My love to all the family, especially Pat who will miss her most.
    Since my early teenage years I have spent many wonderful times with Rosemary and, later, with her, Pat, and her family and friends. We shared interests in gardening, roses in particular, and in horses. We weren’t together often but when we came together it was as though minutes had passed.
    She was a joy to be with, a remarkable person and a great loss.
