Sylvia, I have been following your lovely pictures and stories and was very upst to learn that your sister Joan had died in 1950. Would it be too painful to tell us what tragedy happened to Joan, then she will be remembered by all of us.
I am devastated at the moment as my lovely so Kevin is in critical care at the moment after suffering a 2hour epileptic seizure after being stabbed by an asylum seeker. He has been my carer for 4 years as I am paralysed in a wheelchair. If anyone would like the full story I am willing to tell it.
Having a nightly escape into Wigan world is helping me.

Christine this is so tragic. What a gracious person you sound like, in spite of the adversities which are weighing on you at the moment. Please tell your story if you can find some comfort in doing so.
I hope you have loved ones to help you through. There are way too many reprehensible people in this world who don't deserve the assistance of others that they are getting worldwide, when we have our own who struggle on a day-to-day basis.
