    UT I will miss our very intellectual conversations of how to stay young, I have my gloves that I still wear every winter, the ones we bought when you and I went for a stroll in the market in London. I will cherish reading ‘The Bears of Blue River’ to the boys.
    Goodnight Mr B, love always Clare xxx
