Dear Caron, Mark and Amanda We were so sad to hear the sudden news about your mum. It must have been a terrible shock for all of you and one that I'm sure you're still trying to come to terms with. You all have such great friends around you who want to support you through this difficult time. We have fond memories of both your mum and dad at their lovely house in The Paddocks. They showed such generousity towards your friends (including us) and always welcomed us into their home. Likewise, we had a wonderful holiday in Portugal at their gorgeous villa. We were very lucky indeed! Thinking of you all. With much love Paul and Becca xxx
