Sad news recently I’m afraid is the passing of my dear friend and fan Gwyneth Thornhill, beloved wife of Francis. I’ve known Gwyneth and Francis for many years and I was so upset to hear that Gwyneth had finally succumbed to the dementia diagnosis she received in 2012.
Her funeral was on March 15 and Francis told me that there were plenty of rousing LG favourites to serenade her on her final journey. Although I know none of us were able to attend for Covid lockdown reasons, I am sure those, like me, who have fond memories of wonderful times spent together will have been thinking of her, Francis and the family and sending our deepest condolences, love and hugs. Francis asks that in her memory, those who might like to could make a donation to the local children’s hospice which Gwyneth was responsible for setting up. It’s called –
Hope House Children’s Hospice
If you would like to make a donation, perhaps in lieu of flowers, Frances says the easiest way is to write a cheque to the hospice and mail it to him. He will forward them all together. His address is:
26 Brown Avenue
