Jackie, is your mum still alive, the last time I saw her she was living on the estate at Bryn, every time I hear a Billy Fury song I put my hand up and wave to her like I used to when I lived at home at 15 Pepys Place, gosh she loved him. I even found a school pic of me wearing a dress that your mum bought me.

Hi Joan
Mum's still alive, but she now lives in a Nursing home, she is lost in her own world now and does not recognise anybody.

Our Ray still lives in worsley mesnes, but I don't see a lot of him.
