Thank you for remembering my great uncle, someone that was never spoken about by my grandmother. Her son, my uncle, didn’t last week know that he had had an uncle who was only a year older than his mother. Great suppressed grief which is good to acknowledge.
Simon Franklin, grandson of Kate Tomlinson
